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.

This Sunday is Remembrance Sunday.

Tois year we celebrate 100 years since the armistice on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.  We will keep two minutes silence in memory of all those who laid down their lives inthat terrible conflict. both at St Oswald’s (the service starts at 9.30am) and at All Saints (the service there starts at 11.15am.)

 

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

Friday Fellowship
The Church is open from 10:30 till 1 for anyone to come and drop in for tea and coffee, and a chat.

  • There will also be an act of worship (which will vary in style each week) at 11:15 for half an hour.
  • All are then invited to stay for a shared lunch at 12 o’clock.
  • We’re also arranging for a pay as you feel supermarket to help out any one who can make use of it.

Church Social
On 31st October, there will be a party in St Oswald’s with a Faith supper.  It’s Hallowe’en, when lots of people are scaring themselves with masks and grisly images.  In the Bible we are called ‘children of the light’, and encouraged to reflect the qualities and values of Jesus.  So this party will be light and fun, and will include a quiz.  ‘Faith’ supper means bringing along your food, trusting that others will bring theirs and we can all share.  And please invite others too.

All Saints day is celebrated on the nearest Sunday to the actual date, 1st November; in 2018 that is 4th November.  The saints are not only the Biblical Saints, Peter, John, James, Andrew or St Francis, but all those who have walked the way of Christ before us, and who have inspired us by their Christ-like example.  Who is your faith hero, the one who most want to meet in Heaven?

Landmark
In the past month we have been blessed with two successful funding bids, one for £300 from Marsh Christian Trust, and one from Sovereign Health Care for £5000.  Thanks to both organisations.  The situation in regard to funding James’ vital IT work in All Saints remains uncertain, so please pray for this work.  Pray that a funder with a substantial amount to pay over three years gets behind it.

Inter-Faith Week
We are invited to a ‘faith walk’ on 14th November from Richmond Building, University of Bradford at 3 p.m. ending at Bradford Cathedral at 5 p.m.  Details from Stephen.

Harvest
All Saints school choir and children sang at harvest; thanks to head, deputy and staff.  We gave food parcels to 20 individuals and families.  Marshfield School also gave us their harvest gifts to share with those in need.

Coffee Mornings
In October, St Oswald’s Coffee made £111, All Saints £120. Thank you!
