Our Story

Lubbesthorpe Christians Together (LCT) grew out of a project started by Churches Together in Leicestershire (CTiL) way back in 2014 when the New Lubbesthorpe Development was just in planning stages. After establishing a partnership with Blaby District Council, Churches Together employed Sue Steer as Pioneer Community Worker in 2016 as the first foundations of New Lubbesthorpe were being laid. The role was firstly to see a healthy community develop for everyone and secondly, when there was interest from residents, to see a Christian community seeded. From May 2018 a small group of Christians started to meet to pray and eat together to seek to join in with God's mission in Lubbesthorpe. This became known as Heart and Soul.


In 2020 Lubbesthorpe Alive CIC (www.lubbesthorpealive.org.uk) was established as a community development social enterprise in The Hub and the Heart & Soul group continued under their umbrella. Over time two other faith communities developed - Mossy Church and Monday morning prayers. In 2023 the Christian Community became a Charity in their own right called Lubbesthorpe Christians Together. We continue to remain in association with Lubbesthorpe Alive CIC and Churches Together in Leicestershire.

House Blessings

Living in a new community means there are lots of new homes being moved into each month and so we love to offer the chance for us to visit for a house blessing.

What’s happens? A small group of us will visit your home and through prayer seek God’s blessings for you and all who enter your home. You’re welcome to invite family, friends and maybe new neighbours to join, and perhaps enjoy some food or a cuppa together afterwards.

We’ll happily fit in with what works for you, we’re here to help you in settling into your new surroundings and to offer prayers of blessing for this exciting phase of your life.
