St Andrews Initiative

The St. Andrew’s Initiative tasks itself with bringing together the local community of Aylestone Village in Leicestershire, through a programme of social events and activities.

This means serving the geographical parish of Aylestone in a number of ways –

  • by being a community of hospitality and welcome
  • by providing good and accessible worship
  • by serving those in need through friendship and ministry
  • by developing programmes of life-long learning in Christian faith
  • by valuing the heritage of the medieval church building and enhancing its use through a programme of arts events.

St. Andrew’s Initiative works towards the Mission Statement of the church in order to maintain the Parish Church as a living community of faith for all.

Any monies raised through the events of St Andrews Initiative are put towards developing the future life of the church in relation to the wider community.

The St. Andrew’s Initiative events for 2022 are as follows;
