All Saints’ Cossington
We are a relatively small but friendly congregation and we extend a warm welcome to anyone wishing to attend our church. On the 1st and 4th Sunday of each month we meet in the church at 9.30am for a service of Morning Worship or Holy Communion.
On the 2nd Sunday of each month at 9.30am we hold a FAMILY SERVICE. For this service we meet in the school hall of Cossington Primary School (follow the path through the playground or access via Homestead Close and you will find the school hall adjacent to the school field). This is a relaxed service with separate fun activities for children aged 3 and over. For further information on Children’s activities please phone Helen McCague 01509 812271. All our children’s workers are DBS checked.
On the 3rd Sunday of each month we meet at 5pm in the church for Evening Worship which is a quieter service with a more traditional feel.
After all morning services tea / coffee and biscuits are served and we would invite you to stay and join us to chat and get to know each other better.
The church is not easily visible from the road. Car parking is accessed from beside the war memorial (by the marker for Magpie Cottage). Access by foot is also available along the drive about opposite Homestead Close and Hall Close. (Currently the Google map does not show the church but it is at the end of the above drive)
For Services in the School Hall, turn left (north) from the car park for a short distance along Main St and the school is on the right.
Cossington Parish Church is a Grade II* listed building. Only 4% of listed buildings in England are of this status and are classified as particularly important buildings of more than special interest. Cossington Church has its own Friends organisation which is very active and supportive in raising funds to assist with maintenance and the enhancement of facilities. A description of the church along with a number of pictures are available on the“Leicestershire and Rutland Churches” website. There is currently a project to improve the fabric and facilities of the church, in order to better serve the community and church family, with considerable information available on the “Our Cossington” website.
Architectural details are also provided by Pevsner and may be accessed on the “Charnwood Listed Buildings” website. This site also includes an aerial view of the locality.
