Happy New Year

We walk cautiously into the New Year. Those organising both the weekly Drop-In on Monday and the monthly Ladies’ Circle feel it would be more sensible not to gather at the moment. But our 9.30 services on Sundays and Wednesdays will continue with the usual...

Julie’s funeral

This has now been arranged for 1.00 on Wednesday 22 December at St Michael’s; the Bishop of Bradford will lead the service. We’ll look at the expected numbers and the Covid-safe capacity of the church and see whether or not we will need to ask those from our own...

The Revd Julie Roberts
