a church for all people
Mosaic is a Bible believing church in Leicester.
We want to build a church where everybody is welcomed and accepted, where those who do not know Jesus can ask questions and discover his love for themselves, a church that serves the wider community, cares for the poor and downtrodden and is seen as being a positive influence on the city.
We meet every Sunday at The BRITE Centre at 10.30am. To find our Sunday venue go to Find Us tab.
We are part of Newfrontiers

Last night we received amazing news, Leicester City Council has chosen us as the preferred bidder to take over the running of Manor House Community Centre. This process has been long and often patience sapping and it is great to finally reached this place.
However, this is just the start of the next part of the journey that Mosaic Church is called to be on. Getting the decision was never the aim, nor was getting the building. We believe that Jesus has called us to turn Manor House into a Community Hub.
- A place where those from any or no faith can find a place to be
- A place where the poor are helped and restored
- A place where the diverse groups in our city can come together in genuine community cohesion
- A place that is accessible to all, whatever their physical, mental or emotional challenges
There is so much to do, therefore we are celebrating but also looking forward to the journey ahead.
The same is true about life and faith in general, whether you are a newly engaged couple celebrating but looking forward or an older couple who have suddenly become empty nesters and many other life situations we are called to realise that we are just at a point on the journey.
The Apostle Paul says it like this
13 Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus
Wherever you are today, you are just at a point on your journey, you haven’t reached the prize yet. We need to focus, press on and realise that Jesus has so much more for us. The journey is amazing, but the ultimate prize is the upward call of God….it’s Jesus himself !!! So, while we celebrate a great answer yesterday, we look forward, we focus and press on, trusting that as we build an amazing Community Centre here we will experience Jesus on the journey and will ultimately see Him !!
