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

Numbers at Church in 2018
In 2018 All Saints average Sunday attendance grew from 30.6 adults per Sunday in 2017 to 31.9; child numbers fell slightly from 11.8 to 11.3.
At St Oswald’s average adult Sunday attendance grew from 27.2 to 28.6; and children from 6.5 to 6.6.
Growth in both places was small, but significant.  If that were repeated year on year we would soon be a bigger church.  Keep praying!

Social Church
The next Social Church event is a fun quiz at St Oswald’s on Wednesday 13 February 6.30pm, starting off with a “faith supper”.  It was great to have more of All Saints with us last time, and this quiz will hopefully include more Saints.  Do also invite friends, neighbours and family members.

Successful award!
We heard from the Heritage Lottery fund that they would support All Saints application to restore the metalwork, install lighting in the aisles for exhibitions and pay for a Heritage and Facilities manager to develop use of the building and prepare exhibitions.  So they have awarded us the full amount we asked, £58,900!  Jonathan Bramley is to be the manager, and he and the committee of Janet Firth and Stephen will be answerable to the PCC.

Churchwardens
Churchwardens are not supposed to serve for more than six years; however Maureen Jones has stood for many more years than six, and David Blackwell reaches his six years this Annual Meeting.  Please pray for who might succeed Maureen and David in these important roles.
