Welcome

LATEST, FEBRUARY 2021:
♦ In light of the latest government statement, we have reluctantly decided that Sunday worship at 10.30 am must continue to be on Zoom for the time being, shared with our friends from Oadby and Houghton Methodist Churches. On Sunday evenings, the Leicester Trinity Circuit is holding a Circuit Service at 6 pm.
If you wish to join us for either or both these services, please contact the minister, Rev Derek McLean at derek.mclean@methodist.org.uk ; or call 0116 271 2404.
Depending on government guidance, we hope to resume in-person worship from the beginning of April – Easter weekend: – further details to follow later in March.

♦ The good news is that the chapel will be open for private prayer (masks and social distancing required, of course) between 10 and 11 am on Saturdays. Please feel free to come along and spend time enjoying God’s presence in peace : no appointment required.

♦ If you need support, help or prayers at the present time please contact us and we will do our best to help you. We have a prayer chain and can soon send around confidentially any prayers you may ask for. To contact the Minister or any of the team, please use the details on the Contact Us page. Alternatively please fill out the contact form with a little of how you need assistance or any requests you may have.


The Church at the Cross is a Methodist Church in Great Glen, Leicestershire. It’s so called because we’re at the crossroads in the heart of the village – but more importantly because at the heart of our life is the Cross of Jesus: the sure sign of God’s love for the world and all its people.

We’re an open, warm, friendly and welcoming group of Christians who help and support one another to learn and put into practice what it means to follow Jesus Christ in today’s world, through the guidance and inspiration of God’s Spirit. Our Mission Statement tells you more about what we’re aiming to do, or you can read more about our beliefs.

We are a Methodist church belonging to the Leicester (Trinity) Circuit, part of the Northampton District of the Methodist Church in Britain.

We worship in a Grade II listed building dating from 1827 to which bits have been added over the years, most recently in 1993, to make an attractive suite of premises to be a home for worship and a base for mission.

You’ll find us at the crossroads in the centre of the village between Oaks Road, Stretton Road, Church Road and Main Street. The address is Oaks Road, Great Glen, Leicester, LE8 9EF.
