• 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

    Tuesday, 31 Jan 2023

    Let your good spirit watch over us, O Lord, your love ever rule in our heart and your mercy and forgiveness ever keep us in body, mind and soul. Amen.

    John Wesley (1703–1791)

    We hold before Almighty God, people all over the world who have had to flee their homes due to conflict and war. We pray for families and individuals separated from each other, who continue to seek refuge and safety. We ask for your protection. We thank you, loving God, for charities, churches and individuals who work tirelessly to help all refugees in their time of need. As a justice-seeking Church, we pray that we will be guided by the Holy Spirit to magnify the voices of those people who are marginalised, poor, ignored or excluded all over the globe. We pray for your guidance. In our love for you God, we make these prayers in the name of the holy trinity. Amen.
