Hands Up

Who we are

At Living Hope Church we are a group of Christian believers who love Jesus and want to share his love with the people of Thurmaston.

We are a brand new worshipping community, a church that has been planted from the Cornerstone Team of churches, and have regularly met together since September 2022.

We are a growing, biblically-based Anglican Church in Thurmaston, Leicester.  We seek to encounter Jesus, build community, and see transformation in people’s lives as we discover together what it means to be followers of Jesus in the here and now.

The group establishing this new worshipping community have been sent as a church planting team by the Cornerstone Team of churches.

Cornerstone is one of the Church of England's Resourcing Churches, designated to be pioneering and missional presence in Leicestershire.

partnering with...

Whilst Living Hope Church is a new worshipping community within Thurmaston, we fully recognise that there is already a church presence within the area in St Michael's.


We are committed to partnering well with those at
St Michael's, and as the church plant develops, we hope and pray that we will effectively work alongside one another
to reach the 13,000 people of Thurmaston
with the good news of Jesus.

Why "living hope"
