Ride + Stride is the single largest source of income for many Historic Churches Trusts enabling them to make Grants to places of Christian worship. Taking place on the 2nd Saturday of September the funds raised can be split between the nominated Trust and the participants chosen church or chapel.
As ever Ride+Stride is a wonderful way to enjoy getting out and about safely as well as raising much-needed funds to support Grant applications from churches and chapels across the country.

A reminder that this Sunday, a special and unique event at St Peter’s takes place, following a wedding the previous day. St Peter’s is undergoing an amazing transformation today, with flowers arranged by a London florist, that will remain in the church for the community and wider audience to enjoy on Sunday. The family have generously offered this in the hope that much need funds will be raised for the upkeep of the church building.
Why not come along to enjoy this lovely display and enjoy a cream tea at the Community Hall afterwards?
Cream Teas will begin and run every Sunday afternoon from Sunday 27th June, and hopefully, until the end of September. The church will be open for visitors as usual, but to provide toilets and handwashing facilities, the Cream Teas will now be held in the Community Hall. Home made cakes and scones available for purchase as well as plants and produce.
As part of the month long Festival of Archaeology in Leicestershire & Rutland https://leicsfieldworkers.org/festival-of-archaeology/ these guided tours will highlight the tremendous history of the church from an early medieval naked figure, the 16th Century martyr Laurence Saunders, 18th Century eccentric and visionary William Hanbury and organ casing for the first performance in a parish church of Handel’s Messiah, to the beautiful renovations designed by the architect Joseph Goddard.
