The Christmas Queen

A Christmas musical entertainment for all the family!

After an excellent production in 2007 of The Mystery of Simon Shepherd, Jacqui Haines has decided to put on another - 'The Christmas Queen'.

Journey with the Queen, Dorcas to Bethlehem as she goes in search of the new born King of kings. Along the way, Dorcas is joined by Deborah the Angel who helps her on her quest. During their journey, they meet some people in need and Dorcas misses the birth of Jesus, but she learns some important biblical truths as well.

Advent Wreath Festival and Christmas Fair

Our second Advent Wreath Weekend was held on the 29/30 November 2008 and once again proved to be a very happy and successful occasion. The church was decorated with imaginative wreaths from local businesses, Knighton Fields Primary School and church groups with the schoolrooms and Cup of Cheer Café hosting the Annual Christmas Fair.

Our Advent celebrations were enhanced by the production of some truly beautiful Advent Candle and Angel Hangings, the red, gold and green colours of which have been matched by the flower arrangements throughout the whole period of Advent to Epiphany.

Once again this weekend turned out to be a successful community initiative which brought together all of the individual talents possessed by members within the church. Please join us for what we hope will be another successful event this year.

After School Club

Cavendish Road Leicester
A Church of England/Methodist Partnership


We are a church seeking to develop our work with children who live in the area of Aylestone Park.

We really want to appoint a person to lead an After School Club (7-11 years) which will meet on a weekly basis during school term time. The aim of the Club is to give the children the opportunity to explore the Christian option for their life.

We are a friendly Church of England/Methodist partnership passionate about serving our community and we hope to reach out to young people.

Whilst we have a number of willing volunteers, who will offer wonderful support, we feel we need a person who can offer dedicated time and professional input which our children will need to develop our outreach programme. Are you that person?

The leader will take responsibility for the planning, organisation and overall running of the programme for the Nativity After School Club. The post holder will also be responsible for the co-ordination of the volunteer support team.

We hope to start this project in January 2010. This is a part time post paid as an honorarium of £12.50 per hour for 3 hours per week. This includes travel and preparation time.

If you’re interested please contact Patricia Ewen Church Secretary for more details on 0116 299 4732 or patricia.ewen@ntlworld.com

Closing date for applications: Friday 30 October 2009
