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!

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, Diocesan Safeguarding adviser Carla Darbyshire – carla.darbyshire@leeds.anglican.org, mobile 07399 809732 or Bradford Emergency Duty Team on 01274 431010

 

A Fond Farewell

It was a wonderful privilege to say thanks to our Vicar Stephen at his final service recently. He’s still in the area for a while longer though, so do continue to keep in touch with him!

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.

Services and Events

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?

 

News and Notices

Stu and Rosie Bayford

Our mission partners Rosie and Stu are hoping to fly back to Brazil sometime soon.  but they were turned back at heathrow on 29th March, due to a government mix-up.  They are waiting to hear back from the Federal Police (again!) with some paper documentation to verify their online visa to get into the country. But as they’ve been able to have the first vaccine, it makes sense to stay for the second, and return fully immunised.

Bible studies

Tuesday group and Thursday group are both following a Bible Study on Philippians 1: 1- 11.  We can’t give Zoom log-in details on a public website, but please contact Stephen or Derek for details.
