  The Collect for Growth in North Leigh:

Almighty God

you gave life to the world and saw that it was good:

pour out your life-giving Spirit in the Parish of North Leigh

so that our community grows in understanding and love

and your church grows to include men and women,

young people and children who, restored in your image,

bring the good news of Jesus Christ to neighbours and friends through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

Verse of the day  

Welcome to the website of North Leigh Church

St Mary’s Church, North Leigh, Oxfordshire has been a centre of Christian worship in the area for almost 1,000 years.

 

We endeavour to be an open and caring church that reaches out into our community and provides a place of spiritual comfort, love and worship, where everyone can experience God's redeeming love and grace. We nurture those already on their journey of faith, and are there to encourage and support people as they respond to the ways in which God calls them to work.

 

We rejoice in God’s all-embracing love and everyone is warmly welcome at all our services and activities, irrespective of age, race, background or way of life. Our main act of worship is at 10 am each Sunday: usually a service of Holy Communion but also through our monthly Café Church in our Church Hall across the road. Refreshments are served before or after each of these acts of worship and provides an opportunity to meet one another and build relationships. 

Our thriving ecumenical home groups help us to reach out to others. We take God's word beyond the boundaries of the church building, showing a Christian response within our changing world.


Different styles of worship enable us to reach diverse groups of people. Working with children is a high priority. Our close engagement with the C of E primary school, is pivotal to our vision to share God’s love across the community. Work continues with older children through the church-sponsored youth project, in a purpose-built modern youth centre. Existing activities for other groups include Men's Breakfast, monthly Seniors' Lunch and Tea Club, prayer and Bible study groups.

North Leigh Church is a place of prayer, peace and beauty, where you will find a warm welcome. We look forward to welcoming you at one of our services where we hope you will feel at home, make new friends, and most importantly, grow in relationship with God.

 Please take a tour of the site. 

We hope you enjoy learning about our Church, and that you will come along and visit us.
