Welcome to baby Tilly!
Dear Friends, we were delighted to welcome baby Tilly into our church family, through baptism, during yesterday’s service of worship. Baptism is always such a special time of new life in Christ being affirmed and celebrated, promising to follow Christ as our Lord and Saviour, putting our old life behind us and starting afresh, committing our lives to Jesus by following him and his ways. In the case of Tilly, these promises were made by her parents and godparents on her behalf. Have you been baptised? If not and you would like to be and are serious about a new life in Christ being publicly acknowledged, please speak to Reverend Anthony who will be happy to meet with you to discuss this.
Over the last two and a half years, we have employed a Youth and Community worker to support young people in St. Denys’ Church and the Evington community. She has done some invaluable work, particularly supporting our young people through struggles with anxiety during lockdown, and we would very much like Sarah to continue this and other Youth related work. This, however, requires funding. We therefore ask you to assist us in demonstrating our commitment to our Youth and Community Worker by giving to our appeal – please click on the ‘St. Denys Youth’ link below to donate. We would very much appreciate it. Thank you.
On the eastern edge of the city of Leicester, St Denys Church is an ancient place of Christian worship but just as alive as ever. Our mission is to serve our wonderfully diverse local community in Jesus’ name and grow as a people of prayer at the heart of Evington.
We warmly welcome you to our website, where you can find out about who we are and what we do. Try our new You tube Channel for video reflections and more.
Recently, our Parochial Church Council (PCC) made a commitment to put Young People at the heart of St. Denys life. Please pray for our Youth Worker Sarah as she develops young people in their faith both within the church itself and throughout the parish. Please also pray for our Youth Task Force as they work hard to raise critically important funding and sponsorship for the role Sarah plays. Pray that those who are being contacted about this will have their hearts moved by the Lord and will assist us with the necessary funding. Thank you.
