Christ Church, Mountsorrel 175th Celebrations

Gifted by Miss Sarah Brinton and built in the mid-19th Century, Christ Church held its first ever service on 21 July 1844. Since that time, the Church has provided support for generations of parishioners whilst standing proudly overlooking 'The Green'.

To mark this 175th Anniversary, a week of Mission Both in and for the community has been planned. The week will begin on Sunday 14 July and we hope that many people will come together and join the activities and events.

The Oddments Theatre Company brings 'The Hiding Place' the inspirational and heart wrenching testimony of Corrie ten Boom, to life in their latest production.
Corrie, born on April 15, 1892 in Haarlem, Holland, and her Christian family are outraged at the German occupation in the Second World War, and the constant persecution of the Jewish community. Her sister, Betsie, and father, Casper, join Corrie and thousands of others in the unceasing resistance of God's underground. Their refusal to stand by and watch the Nazi's horrendous onslaught, and their faith that prevails throughout their subsequent suffering of the Second World War's darkest terrors, continues to inspire all of those who encounter Corrie's incredible story. Rated 5 stars by audience members, you will not be disappointed by this passionate story of God's love and hope in amidst an environment of darkness and brutality.
