Welcome to St. Leonard’s
St Leonard’s Church is a family which is trying to follow Jesus in every aspect of life. We are a family within the Church of England, a family that takes Scripture seriously, a family which values the sacraments (of Baptism and Holy Communion), and a family which values its place within the town of Padiham. Our family is quite diverse, and you will meet all sorts of people here at St. Leonard’s, and therefore each of our services is slightly different.
Our 8am service, which meets on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, is a quiet reflective service which is preferred by some of the older members of our family. Our 9.30am service is a service which is aimed at everyone, which has as a result a real family feel, and worships in a traditional way including a robed choir, and Holy Communion most weeks. Our 5.30pm service, in contrast, is more modern with a lower average age and more contemporary music.
During the week, we also have a Holy Communion service on Wednesday at 10am which is a short and quiet service. What unites each of our services is they are places where we seek to focus on Jesus, think about what the Bible teaches us, pray and sing together, and then spend time as a family over coffee at the end.
As you can tell, each of our services is slightly different, but we hope that at each one you will receive a warm welcome, whether you already know Jesus or whether you are interested in getting to know more about Him.
