City parish is looking forward to renaming service
At a service of the Eucharist (Mass) on Sunday, September 5, at 4pm Bishop Christopher, Assistant Bishop of Leicester, will rename St Alban's Church, Weymouth Street, "The Church of the Resurrection" so that parish and parish church share the same dedication.
Bishop Christopher will also baptise new Christians and confirm those further along their faith journey.
This is a big and joyful day in the life of the people of the Parish of the Resurrection who seek to develop their work of Christian service throughout the parish, among all peoples without distinction, and for whom their parish church is the "power house" from which, in the growing company of Christians, they move into and among the communities that make up the parish witnessing to the love of God by active care and compassion.
For our developing Christian community this is a day and a celebration of "New Life": a confirmation of our confident looking forward in faith!
This change will not affect our community centre which will remain St Alban's Community Centre.
All friends of the parish and the parish church are welcome to join us for the celebration!
Rev Tony Coslett, team rector
