• 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.

  • Latest News: Great Glen Methodist Church is now registered for Same-Sex Marriage. We are delighted that Methodist Churches are able to take this important step. We believe that God loves everybody.


    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.

  • Daily Prayer from the Methodist Church

    Prayer of the Day

    Thursday, 19 May 2022

    Give to us, Lord, the peace of those who have learnt to serve you, the joy of those who are glad to obey you and the delight of those who rejoice in your praise; through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Aidan of Lindisfarne (d.651)

    Jesus our guest, none of our communities include everyone. There are many places we set aside for our own safety, identity or privacy, or through prejudice or presumption. We find it hard to make space for people we consider unsavoury – people who use obscene language or who hold views we find offensive. How often have we shut out others just by our presence, never mind our words and actions?
    Lord have mercy.
    You alone will open up the longed-for space for all in your commonwealth of love and grace, when you judge the nations, heal our divisions and transform our communities. What you started in Galilee, continue now. Through your Spirit, come, be our guest. Widen our circle again. Amen

    Andrew Lunn, Manchester and Stockport District Chair
