• 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.

    Prayer of the Day

    Thursday, 08 Jun 2023

    Keep us, O Lover of all, under the strength of your protection and enfold us within the eternity of your kingdom; for in you is our hope and to you we give all praise and glory; now and for ever. Amen.

    Macarius of Egypt (c.300–c.390)

    Lord of creation, saviour, sustainer, spirit of life and love, Open our hearts, souls and minds to your renewing energy and grace; Vibrant Spirit, fill us with your life, above all else, that we, Even we, may love you, our neighbours and ourselves, as you love us.

    Creawdwr, Gwaredwr, Cynhaliwr, Ysbryd goleuni a chariad, Agor ein calonnau, ein heneidiau a’n meddyliau i’th egni a’th ras adnewyddol di; Rwyt yn ein llenwi â’th fywyd, Ysbryd bywiog, fel y gallwn ni, Uwchlaw dim, dy garu di, ein cymdogion a’n hunain, fel rwyt ti’n ein caru ni.

    Jennifer Hurd, Synod Cymru Chair
