Safeguarding

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

Finances 

We are OK at St Oswald’s, but 2020 was a disaster at All Saints with the loss of our congregation and all our rental income that we need to pay our way.
But read of God’s amazing provision here

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.

Services and Events ↓

Services and Events

During this period of restricted accessibility, we normally open one Church building each Sunday at 10.30am, and these worship services are streamed online; you can view them on the home page, or go direct to our Facebook page. Do let us know how you find our services; it’s great to have your feedback.

 

For anyone you may know who doesn’t find the internet easy, did you know that the Church of England have created a helpline called Daily Hope? This is aimed at those who do not have access to the internet and all the online resources. Using a freephone number (0800 8048044), it offers a hymn, reading and prayer.

 

The Church of England have also prepared a really valuable set of reflections for promoting mental health and wellbeing at this time, why not take a look?

Stu and Rosie Bayford

Our mission partners Rosie and Stu are hoping to fly back to Brazil in the New Year.  Rosie writes, “We want to say a huge thank you to you all for such amazing, constant support and encouragement.  Your prayers, thoughts and donations mean such a lot to us and allow us to continue our work with the girls of Revive (and a lot more besides) which we’re incredibly grateful for.  Well done for showing such strength in community and sharing God’s hope and love through an unprecedented, trying time.  Thank you for your incredibly generous ongoing support which means such a lot  to us.  We are excited to get back soon and follow God where He leads us in our work.”

Bradford Council has awarded our Churches £350 towards food parcels for callers at the vicarage door, in addition to what kind members bring. So we shall be able to give out more generous hampers than ever.
