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

Carol singing at Morrisons
Despite the terrible weather we raised £1156 for Relief and Education in Sudan.  We also gained two foreign coins, one trolley token, one old pound and half a polo mint as extra blessings.  Dale Barton the organiser had the impression that between a fifth and a quarter of donations were made by Muslims.

Diamond Wedding
A surprise awaited Ian and Lily Leech when their daughter Lesley and husband Richard brought them to St Oswald’s on 9th December to celebrate their Diamond wedding.  They found their family there in numbers to greet and support them, with a huge anniversary cake.  They also worked out that they have been coming to St Oswald’s for 50 of those years!

Assistant Area Dean
The ‘Deanery’ of Inner Bradford consists of 18 churches under the leadership of new Area Dean John Bavington, and myself as assistant.  We have to ensure that churches in our Deanery are coping, especially where there is no vicar; we are to exercise pastoral support for local clergy:  to arrange meetings for Deanery Synod and clergy chapter meetings:  and we (hopefully John) has to attend Bishop’s staff meetings and Diocesan Synod meetings.  I trust it won’t be too onerous…   I am to be licensed on 6th January at a service in St John’s Great Horton at 6 p.m.  Anyone is welcome to come.

Sundays
On the 20th January there is a pulpit swap between the churches of our area; Pastor Akpo Onduku from the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Great Horton is coming to preach in St Oswald’s and All Saints, Stephen is at the Italian Mission on Little Horton Lane, and Derek is at our churches on Sunday morning and at St Joseph’s on Sunday night.
From 3rd February we shall be looking at the five themes of JSP to remind ourselves again of our churches’ aims and goals.
