Welcome to the churches of Little Horton in Bradford

All Saints and St Oswald’s

Both churches offer a lively mix of old and new hymns and songs in the Holy Communion service, a Sunday School for children, and a warm welcome. Why not try us out?

All Saints and St Oswald’s are two of the four churches in the AMOS cluster of Churches in Bradford 5;
All Saints, St Matthew’s, St Oswald’s, St Stephen’s.

We belong to the Anglican Communion, within the CofE Diocese of Leeds.

All Saints

At All Saints, we believe that God loves us and that he sent Jesus to die for us and to rise again from the dead.  Through faith in Jesus we find our wrongdoings forgiven and we know peace with God and with one another.  And one day we look forward to being with God in heaven.

Sundays
Sunday worship is at 11.15 a.m. when we meet God in the teaching of the Bible and in Holy Communion.  There is Sunday School for children during the service every Sunday except the first of the month.   After the service time we serve drinks and cake and a chance to meet one another.

For beginners
Once or twice a year we offer a six week ‘START!’ course for those wanting to explore their faith.  In a small group in the vicarage we meet over coffee and video to discuss the meaning of life. Contact the vicar.

Our Vicar
All Saints shares a vicar, Rev. Canon Stephen Treasure, with St Oswald’s Church, further up Little Horton Lane.

News and Notices

Jo Cox anniversary

It’s a year since Jo Cox, MP for Batley was struck down suddenly and brutally by a Nazi sympathiser.  Her husband Brendan Cox has invited the nation to celebrate her life by organising events that bring us together and celebrate diversity.  All Saints School has invited the Church to join them to organise a big street party on Saturday 17th June 2-4 p.m. on Kennion Street and the Church and its grounds.
The need for such a community event is all the greater following the massacre in Manchester, and All Saints is well placed in a Muslim community to build bridges of friendship in Bradford.
The programme for the afternoon includes entertainer Harry Kingham and colleague, School Choir, Cheerleaders and Talent Show; stalls include plants, music, cakes, bric-a-brac, books, tombola, face painting.  There are trips up the tower with stunning views across the city; a fire engine has been invited and the Lord Mayor hopes to put in an appearance.  Refreshments are in Church, provided by us. All profits will be divided according to who runs the stall.  Unfortunately it’s Ramadan, so lots of Muslims won’t be eating.
We thank All Saints School for their organisation and for being such a great partner. Together we work towards the Bible’s  ‘Do good to all, especially to the household of God’ and ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’; surely whatever brings us together opens the door to love.

‘Thy Kingdom Come’
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited all Christians to spend the ten days between Ascension Day and Pentecost praying to grow in confidence as witnesses to Christ.  Hundreds of thousands have already committed to be involved.
In St Oswald’s and All Saints we will set aside times to pray – at St Oswald’s – with one another and with God in prayer: –
Thursday 25th May                             10.30 a.m.
Tuesday 30th May                               12.15 p.m.
Wednesday 31st May                          6.30 p.m.
Thursday 1st June                               12.15 p.m.
Friday 2nd June                                  12.15 p.m.
Saturday 3rd June                              11.45 a.m.

Derek Jones
Derek and Helen with Reuben and Matilda will be moving to Bradford from Durham at the end of his theological training subject to house purchase.  Derek will be ordained deacon at Bradford Cathedral on Saturday 1st July at 3 p.m.  He used to work for ‘e:merge’ with young people in Bradford, as well as running the youth group jointly with Helen at Holy Trinity Idle; they are delighted to be in inner-city Bradford.

Carol Wood
Carol leaves All Saints and Bradford to take up the post of Deputy Warden at Parcevall Hall from 5th June.  Carol first came to All Saints in August 2010, was confirmed and immediately began to take a leading role, at first in Deanery Synod and PCC, then running Inn Churches one year, then starting ‘Three Cups of Tea’, then training as a Reader in the Church of England, licensed last October.  Her health was poor and she has carried a heavy responsibility for her parents, all with good grace.  We shall miss her!

Coffee Morning
St Oswald’s Coffee Morning on 3rd June will be in aid of St Stephen’s ‘Warm the Heart’ campaign to raise £60,000 towards a new heating system.
Fathers’ Day
All fathers are invited to Church on June 18th, Fathers’ Day, when there will be a small gift for each father – of any age.  Fathers’ Day is a festival I have resisted for years, because it was invented by the advertising market, but since it’s here let’s celebrate the contribution fathers make.
