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 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.
