Welcome to the churches of Little Horton in Bradford

Sunday worship

As the Government’s roadmap begins to ease restriction, and as more people are gradually wishing to re-engage with worship services in person, our churches are now returning to two service on a Sunday morning, one in each building to ensure we can still maintain safe social distancing.

So we’ll be at St. Oswald’s at 9:30 and All Saints at 11:15 each Sunday morning.

The 9:30 am Sunday services are live streamed for you to follow at home if you’re still not sure about coming out in person yet, Feel free to join us live at the time, or at any point through the week – the services stay up on the Facebook page for as long as you need them!

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.

Our Vicar
All Saints shares a Priest-in-Charge, Derek Jones, with St Oswald’s Church, further up Little Horton Lane.

Private Prayer

All Saints is open every Wednesday 11-12 for private prayer, except for Ash Wednesday

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?

Weekly Bible Studies

St. Oswalds and All Saints are pleased to have a choice of weekly Bible studies for anyone wanting to think a little more about God’s word.

St. Oswalds meet on a Tuesday evening at 7pm on Zoom, All Saints on at Thursday evening at the same time. We don’t put the zoom link’s on the website, but you can get them by signing up to our weekly newsletter.

We also have a Bible Study group for those who are new to English. it’s on a break at the moment, but should be up and running again soon!

Pop up Pantry 

Thanks to our Friends at InnChurches  it’s great to be able to offer low cost food to anyone from the community who might be able to make use of it, as well as an opportunity for a cup of tea and a chat. We open the pantry at All Saints each Thursday at 12:30, and ask for £1 per five items. In order to make what we have go round everyone who might like some, we do ask that customers only take one of each item. The range of what we have varies week by week, but there’s always a selection of fresh and store cupboard food to keep you going!
