Come On and Celebrate at St Denys!
Dear Friends, this month is a time of celebration for many in our church family. Last Monday, our churchwarden Gerry celebrated a significant birthday and after the service on Sunday, to mark this occasion, we enjoyed cake and a glass of fizz or two in the Parish Centre, a surprise for her! This Sunday, Brenda celebrates her 100th birthday and Geoff and June will be toasting each other on their 68th wedding anniversary in September too! Many congratulations and love to them all from their friends at St. Denys. Every week in St. Denys, we celebrate and give thanks for another immensely significant occasion, through the gift of Holy Communion, that took place thousands of years ago, namely Jesus dying on the cross to take away all our sins and rising again to new life which we now have in his name. Why not join us this Sunday at 10am, either in person or via Zoom as we give thanks to God and worship him. Our service this week will be led by our Reader Geraldine. All are very welcome.
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.
