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

Graham
Read in Church 12/08/2018
“As you may already know, one of our congregation was jailed at Bradford Crown Court on Thursday after pleading guilty to historical sex offences against children.
The crimes which Graham Learoyd committed are both shocking and deeply saddening.
The crimes are not connected with St Oswald’s in any way.
Of course, our thoughts and prayers must be firstly for his victims and also for others impacted by his actions.
Care and support have been provided throughout, and we have worked with the Diocesan Safeguarding team since we became aware of this last year to make sure appropriate safeguarding measures have been in place at St Oswald’s.
May I again ask for your prayerful support for all concerned at such a sad time.”
Graham is currently in Armley prison.  Joan has been able to phone but not yet to visit .  Stephen and Jenny also hope to visit.

Baptisms
Iveta Bambuchova is baptised at All Saints on Sunday 26th August at All Saints.  Chloe Corrigan is to be baptised on 30th September at St Oswald’s.

Sunday Evening Worship
Derek and the team are planning a second act of worship to complement Sunday Mornings for all who would like to be a part of something more contemporary – both from the existing Church body and from ‘outside’.  The focus is on Worship, Prayer, Community and the Bible, and is Team led.  This month’s evening service and the following few months will be at St Oswald’s.

Confirmation
Bishop Toby is coming to confirm five people at All Saints on Sunday 23rd September at 5 p.m, Moein Ebrahimi, Behnam Akbary, Noma Ncube, Aubrey Nkolimbo, Benjamin Pabvabango.  Moein and Behnam are from Iran, Noma from Zimbabwe and Aubrey and Benjamin from Malawi.  These who come to us from other countries are a huge blessing to All Saints; let’s support them and their families, – and let’s BE their family that day and make it special by our presence.

James Clayton
We have been thrilled by the support of funders in response to many funding applications.  Garfield Weston gave us £5000 and Santander £4982 towards the costs of James’ work with job-seekers and those seeking help with IT.  Thanks to both these wonderful organisations.

Rosie and Stu Bayford
Rosie and Stu leave for Brazil with CMS when their visas arrive; they are a third away from their monthly budget.  If anyone wants to support financially, check out their newsletter in Church.
