A congregation of over 60 gathered on Sunday for a glorious service of Choral Evensong. The music was sung by our highly respected visiting choir Rectory Choral. This was followed by a party in churchyard, bathed in the summer evening sun.

Congratulations to Darren and Becky, who plan to marry at Leake in 2018 – after many years of driving past “our little church”. Oh, and we have a very cute door too!


We decided to experiment with a new service format this month. Called “Cafe Church”, it was held in one of our village halls and was much less formal than our usual services. We shared coffee and cakes, before singing some popular hymns that had been chosen by the congregation. We […]
