A Big


Dear All

As many of you may know I have been in hospital and then recovering from an operation for the last few weeks.

By Mid-May I hope to be back in post full-time, although taking it a little easy for a while, and I wish to say a big Thank You to you all for your prayers and help during my illness - especially a thank you to all the Clergy and others who have stood in at All Saints to keep things running.


Fr. Mark



As of the 1st. of June 2019 the two parishes of All Saints, Pontefract and of St. Giles with St Mary will be united under the Banner Title of


In practice, certainly for the time being, this will make little difference to our everyday Parish Life, but as we grow together under this new heading there will opportunities to do some things together that are best done together, whilst still retaining the unique strengths and character of our two Parishes, which will still continue to exist individually. Together our Christian Witness to our town of Pontefract and her People will grow and flourish.


Baptisms, or Christenings as they are sometimes known, are usually held on the First and Third Sundays of each month. 


To book a Baptism, in the first instance either contact our Parish Office most Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursday's and Fridays between 12.00noon and 3.00pm on 01977 600230. Otherwise, if you come to one of our Sunday Morning 10.00am services and make yourselves known after the service to one of the Ministers, or ask for Brian and/or Pat Pilkington.


We will then arrange to come and visit your family at your home and finalise the date and other details.


For children it is traditional to nominate Three God Parents, who will help on the day by speaking on the child's behalf and then afterwards by being their Spiritual guides and reminding them of a day which, especially if they are very young, they will not be able to remember for themselves, so that when they are old enough to understand they may continue their Christian Faith Journey by coming for Confirmation.


The Godparents should be themselves Baptised members of the Church, but this need not be a bar to them as they may also be Baptised at the same time.


The Church welcomes children of all ages for Baptism, and Adults too.
