Loughborough's Historic Parish Church
Loughborough’s oldest parish church serves the communities of Hastings, Storer and Lemyngton and offers a place of worship and welcome to all.
The building is home to an inclusive Christian community, part of the Diocese of Leicester and sits within the liturgical and sacramental tradition of the Church of England. All Saints seeks to be a place where people from all walks of life can connect with a sense of the sacred, explore the Christian faith with depth and intellectual integrity and where love of God is expressed in word and deed.
Worship is offered throughout the week with special services offered for those wishing to celebrate their marriage, the birth of a child or to mourn the passing of a loved one. The church community of All Saints looks to work in partnership with all those who share the values of the kingdom of God. They are members of Loughborough Churches Partnership, Loughborough Council of Faiths and Human Rights and Equalities Charnwood.
The parish office is situated within Fearon Hall where our current Rector Revd. Wendy Dalrymple can often be found.
Our Rector Writes:
“Whether you come through the doors of this ancient place of worship to seek God, to appreciate local history, to rejoice or to mourn you will find a warm and friendly welcome. I look forward to meeting you.”
Temporary Church Building Closure
It is with a heavy heart that myself and the Churchwardens, with the support of the PCC, have taken the decision to close our church building for private prayer and communal worship from immediate effect. (December 31st 2020)
This is in response to the Tier 4 classification for Leicestershire. Although this is not a mandatory requirement from government, and we are confident we have had covid secure practices in place, we feel the right thing to do now is support the wider message to stay at home wherever possible. Given the uncertainties of the new strain of coronavirus and the current pressure on our NHS we feel this is the most sensible course of action at this time. We shall review this decision by the end of January.
Worship will continue through January online with daily prayer on Facebook, Sunday mornings will be an invitation to gather on Zoom and twice a month there will be a live streamed service on Sunday evenings. Further details of what this will look like will be sent out in due course.
I will continue to send out a regular weekly email bulletin and the pastoral team will be in touch by phone with anyone who would appreciate a regular call or who doesn't have access to email. Do please get in touch if you would appreciate a phone call during this time, either by emailing me or contacting the parish office:
I am so grateful for all the work everyone has put in to allowing us to open safely over the last few months and for the ways in which people have reached out to support one another during this challenging time. Please stay in touch, reach out for support in prayer and fellowship and hold fast to the message of Christmas that God dwells with us and we have seen his glory in the face of Jesus. May you know the presence and peace of Christ in the weeks ahead.
