A friendly Anglican/Methodist Partnership serving the Community of Aylestone Park
We, the people of The Ecumenical Church of the Nativity, are called to be the people of God in Aylestone Park,
through faith in Jesus Christ, in the power of the Holy Spirit, worshipping God, making disciples and serving others.
Thanks for dropping in on our website, it’s good to welcome you. It would also be good to welcome you at one of the many events and services we hold at our church. We’re a friendly bunch who believe that getting to know God is exciting and should involve laughing, having fun and eating!!
At the Nativity we try to help each other to develop our potential, achieve our aspirations and meet our needs. We also visit the ill, the elderly and welcome those seeking asylum.
Our overall aim at the Nativity is to make a real positive difference in the lives of the people of Aylestone Park, enabling local people to more fully develop their potential, meet their aspirations and address their needs.
We engage with the community
The Church hosts local residents groups meetings. Church members are also active in supporting local charities and exploring activities with young people.
The Church has a history of community involvement and concern through its membership. Church members already have strong, active links with the local community including visiting the housebound, the ill and the elderly, supporting local residents, and befriending refugees.
We care about the environment
The Church of the Nativity is an Eco-Congregation and our environmental activities are currently concentrated in the areas of worship, recycling, youth activities and community and global initiatives. The Nativity is also a registered Fairtrade Church with both the Leicester Diocese of the Church of England and the Leicester Trinity Circuit of the Methodist Church.

The Nativity has an active and forward thinking Community Outreach Team who are responsible for:
The missionary and charitable activities within the church.
Organisation of the ‘eco-congregation’ side of the church’s activities.
We at the Nativity will promote the welfare of children, young people and adults, work to prevent abuse from occurring, seek to protect those that are at risk of being abused and respond well to those that have been abused. We will take care to identify where a person may present a risk to others, and offer support to them to them whilst taking steps to mitigate such risks.
The Nativity affirms the ‘Whole Church’ approach to safeguarding. This approach encompasses a commitment to consistent policy and practice across all Church bodies, Church Officers and that everyone associated with the Church, who comes into contact with children, young people and adults, has a role to play.
We will take appropriate steps to maintain a safer environment for all and to practice fully and positively Christ’s Ministry towards children, young people and adults: to respond sensitively and compassionately to their needs in order to help keep them safe from harm.
