St Botolph’s, Shepshed
has a recently re-ordered 12th century church in the centre of the town with a modern hall adjacent to it. As well as being open for regular services, St. Botolph’s is open on Tuesday and Saturday mornings 9.30am – 12.30pm for refreshments, a look around, prayer or chat. Do pop in to see us for interest, a chat or just a cuppa!
We are a lively, happy Parish with many church organisations.
Youth and Children’s work includes a group for pre-school children (Cheeky Chops at St. Bots). We will soon be starting a baby nurture course – details soon. There is a Mothers’ Union branch, bell-ringing group, ladies and mens fellowship groups, choir and praise band. A number of house groups meet regularly for Bible study and fellowship. See the tab “Groups” for more information on the many groups available.
St. Botolph’s is an active member of Churches Together in Shepshed and part of the Northern Lights Mission Partnership.
St James the Greater, Oaks-in-Charnwood
has a well-maintained early 19th century Waterloo Church with a well-used and well-maintained wooden hall, adapted for disabled use, adjacent to the church.
St. James’ the Greater is in an idyllic rural setting, much in demand for weddings.
They have a bell-ringing group, Mothers’ Union branch, a Senior Citizens club, dance groups, art class and a Gardening club. “Meeting Point” for prayer and Bible study is held weekly. There is a strong link with the nearby Cistercian Monastery at Mount St. Bernard.
