Events: Past & Present

St. Barnabas Grange Park

October 2019

As many might know, in 2017 Martyn Snow, Bishop of Leicester, asked the churches in Leicestershire if they wanted to become ‘Resourcing Churches’.

A Resourcing Church is a church that wants to grow new Christian communities and reach new people, many of whom have had little or no contact with the Church of England.

The Good Shepherd church, in partnership with Emmanuel Loughborough, were one of the 6 churches in the Diocese of Leicester that was designated as a Resourcing Church, and now, after nearly 2 years of hard work and prayer, we’re ready to start our new worshipping community in the heart of the Grange Park Estate…

St Barnabas, also known as STB!  It’s mission is to plant and grow an authentic Christian Church that seeks to encounter Jesus, build community and see transformation on Grange Park and beyond.

We know that for many visiting a church can be a leap into the unknown. If you would like to come and see what’s going on but are not sure what to expect we would love to introduce you to a friendly face before the Sunday gathering.
