• 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, 27 Sep 2022

    Let our souls rejoice in your power, O God, and our hearts in your love. As our mouths are filled with your praise, may our lives testify to your grace.

    Sarah Crosby, Methodist Preacher (1729–1804)

    O Holiness,
    O Beauty,
    O Life,

    You called creation into being,
    sustained by your will alone,
    it is an offering of your love poured out for others to enjoy.

    Your goodness echoes in the light and shade,
    the palette and textures,
    in the sounds and movements of life.

    You look upon all you have made with love,
    hold all things together in Christ,
    and grant it daily life by the gift of your Spirit.

    We rest in your gaze: knowing ourselves loved, we love.
    We fall into your arms: knowing ourselves welcomed, we welcome.
    We live through your generosity: knowing ourselves as recipients, we give. 

    Let our lives be all you long for them to be. Amen.

    Kerry Tankard, Yorkshire West District Chair
