Find out more about One Church and who we are
One Church is an Assemblies of God (AOG) Church in Leicestershire made up of over 1000 people from many backgrounds, many nations, and of many ages. We were founded out of an outpouring of the Holy Spirit and a longing to pursue the presence of God.
One Church began on the 1st May 2022, and was born out of the joining of Trinity Life Church and All Nations Church. Read some of our story here.
We meet in different sites around Leicestershire. We gather on Sundays, but also meet in smaller groups and run many activities throughout the week.
