Welcome to CBC Leicester
Dear Central Baptist Church family,
Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19) Precautions at CBC.
Following the advice in the link above all CBC groups, services, social activities and gatherings are being suspended until further notice. Our minister and Pastoral Care Team are still working remotely and the phones are redirected. So do call as normal if you need any help.
Bible teaching, prayer and other frequent updates will be running online instead. Further information/links will be sent out by email, text and on all our social media platforms.
We will also let you know of our Pastoral procedures, ideas of how to care for each other and stay in touch, online prayer times and other resources to help you – in this period we will continue supporting, connecting, praying, helping and reassuring you. You won’t be alone!
Thank you for taking the time to visit.
We meet to worship together every Sunday at 10:45am and at other times during the week. Please explore our website to find out more.
How to Find Us
Located in the centre of Leicester, Central Baptist Church is 5 minutes from the train station, and approximately 10 minutes from the bus station. We are within easy reach from most places in the city and conveniently located between the University of Leicester and De Montfort University. For Sat Nav purposes, our postcode is LE1 1LA for our front entrance on Charles Street. The car park to the rear of the church building in Alfred Place is the most convenient for visiting Central on Sundays. This is a pay and display car park which is not owned by Central Baptist Church. This and other places where parking is available are below:
- Alfred Place, LE1 1EB (just off Granby Street). There are limited spaces in this car park on weekdays as it is majority permit holders and fills up quite quickly. Generally, more become available in the evening after 5.30pm. There are usually lots of spaces available on Sundays at a fixed rate for the whole day.
- 31 - 33 Dover St, Leicester LE1 6PW (just off Granby Street). Tends to be the best option on weekdays.
- Rutland Centre, 56 Halford St, Leicester LE1 1TQ (next to Curve Theatre)
- Roadside parking spaces on Charles Street or Granby Street
The church building is then a short walk. From Granby Street and the Alfred Place carpark you can access the back entrance of the building which is opposite the Leicester City Council Customer Services in between an off licence and a barbers. If you make your way down to the large metal security gate at the bottom of the car park this will lead you to the side door of our building and the side entry which leads to our front entrance on Charles Street.
