Being Involved in St Leonard’s


You may have gathered we are a small church with a big heart. The activities and news gives you some ideas of how you can get involved and below are some specific activities for you to consider:


We would love you to pray for our church, to find out more contact our prayer co-ordinator The Revd. Glynis Beckett

At the back of church is a prayer board in which people list requests for prayer. You will find paper and pens to add a request to the board.

Intercessions and Bible Readings

Brenda is always looking out for willing volunteers to be included in the rota for Bible readings and intercessions. For futures information contact:


This is important part of our Sunday worship. If you would like to become involved in providing some biscuits (or cake) then contact:

Bible Study

This is a great way of getting to know people and learning about the Christian faith. For further information contact:


Do you have a gift for arranging flowers? Ann would be pleased to hear from you. Contact:

Bell ringers

If you have no fear of heights and want to call our village to worship, then Derrick Steven’s would be pleased to hear from you.

Church cleaning

Every so often we have a spring clean (sometimes delayed to the autumn). So if you are handy with a duster or mop you would be very welcome at our church cleaning morning. Watch the new section for dates!

Giving to St Leonard’s

Our churchwardens keep the church open most days and we know from the visitors book that this is a source of spiritual peace for those who take time out to pray and reflect on their Christian faith. Some of the Sunningwell Art School artists use St Leonard to explore their artistic creativity. Sunday afternoon is a busy point in the week when people just drop in. Keeping the church open to the public during the week is a significant in the life of the wider community.

We are also part of a wider church community which employs our dedicated Rector and provides us with a whole host of other services. Some of our other expenditure is more practical and we like being warm in the winter and the lights are fairly important too!

We have a number of ways in which you can give a gift to the church.

One-off gift:

Standing order:
