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?
We belong to the Anglican Communion, within the CofE Diocese of Leeds.
As a member of the Church of England, our Churches have adopted the House of Bishops safeguarding guidelines to Promoting A Safer Church. If you want to get in touch with someone other than the clergy about safeguarding, please Contact Pauline Lucas at St Oswald’s or Churchwarden Chris Graham, and for All Saints Contact Janet Firth. You can also ring Childline on 0800 1111, Bradford Safeguarding Unit on 01274 437500 or Bradford Emergency Duty Team on 01274 431010.
Inn Churches at All Saints
It is that time of year when churches across Bradford open their doors to welcome people who are homeless as part of Inn Churches. At All Saints we are hosting up to 12 homeless people each night from Monday 25th November to Monday 2nd December.
Winter Shelters offers a warm safe place for people to sleep, lovely food, drinks and company.
We require volunteers to cover this period of time. There are three different shifts available, these are: 6-9am 6-10pm, 10pm-6am. We also welcome volunteers to cook food for the evening meals. So if you feel like you can offer your time ‘behind the scenes’ or at church, then please get in touch with Stephen
If you are a new volunteer you must attend an In Churches training; the next one is on the evening of October 24th, 7pm-9pm at The Storehouse, 116 Caledonia Street, Bradford, BD4 7BQ.
There will also be a session at the beginning of November for our specific church which will iron out any volunteer shortages or answer any questions specific to our church building and maybe become familiar with other volunteers on your shift. That is on Tuesday 12th November 7-8 p.m.
