• 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: The Church Council of Great Glen Methodist Church met on the 7th October and voted unanimously in favour of the building being registered for Same-Sex Marriage. We have submitted the application. 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
    A daily prayer from the Methodist Prayer Handbook

    Wednesday, 01 Dec 2021

    Glorify the Lord, all you works of the Lord,
    praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

    Glorify the Lord, O nights and days,
    O shining light and enfolding dark.
    Storm clouds and thunderbolts, glorify the Lord,
    praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

    Glorify the Lord, O mountains and hills,
    and all that grows upon the earth,
    praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

    Glorify the Lord, O springs of water, seas, and streams,
    O whales and all that move in the waters,
    All birds of the air, glorify the Lord,
    praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

    Glorify the Lord, O beasts of the wild,
    and all you flocks and herds,
    O men and women everywhere, glorify the Lord
    praise him and highly exalt him for ever.

    Taken from the Book of Common Prayer, 1979, Episcopal Church, USA

    God of all glory, when the roar of the traffic recedes
    and even our hymns are stilled in our mouths,
    then we hear strains of an anthem sung since
    you called all things into being;
    how birds burst their breasts with gratitude at being alive;
    how waves on the shore lap a lullaby at your manger
    and spring lambs bleat delight at the empty tomb;
    how the wind in the tall pines whispers psalms to the Spirit.
    As we begin to sing again, help us not to crave the melody
    but to find our place in the harmony of all creation.
