Welcome to St Leonard’s Church!
We are here to help you worship the Lord and open your hearts to him. We also help socialize with the public by putting on celebration events and others as such as
We have regularly have children visiting the church with their schools and we rent out the Community Space to organisations like the local council for leisure courses.
There are also fundraising events like our Spring, Summer and Christmas Fairs and Lunch with Bingo. We regularly host concerts and other special events as the occasion arises.
Our worship could be described as central and is primarily Eucharist based, traditional and liturgical in style yet seeking to be progressive and creative, always seeking to improve and make it welcoming for those who come regularly to church and for those who perhaps haven’t been for awhile.
St Leonard’s is also a church which is a popular one for christenings, as well as being a venue for weddings and for renewal of wedding vows.
But come and check us out for yourself!
St Leonard’s was built in 1805 and it is one of only three Thomas Telford designed churches in England.
As a church we are part of the Church of England parish of Central Telford, within the Diocese of Lichfield. We seek to work closely with other Anglican churches and churches of other denominations within the town. We are also glad to have close links with a couple of local primary schools, who have various services in the building during the year. Part of the ministry of St Leonard’s is also within a local sheltered housing scheme supporting the residents in their Christian faith. Each year we support the Christmas Shoe Box appeal, run by Samaritan’s Purse, to help disadvantaged children. We also contribute to the charity Vincent de Paul which helps those in need in the local area and elsewhere in Telford and Shropshire.
We take Safeguarding at St Leonard’s very seriously and, as part of Central Telford Parish, we have a parish policy and practice that is fully in line with both the Diocese of Lichfield and all legal requirements.

There is more information about us through the various links on this webpage.
You would be very welcome to any of our Sunday or weekday services and we hope to see you some time!
May God bless you…
