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.


Here we will be posting details of our regular Services on Sundays and during the week. We do hope you find something here for you to enjoy.



8.00am Holy Communion Service

This is simple, mainly spoken Communion Service or 'Eucharist' that lasts for about 45 minutes to an hour.

We usually end with a Hymn or Song

10.am Holy Communion Service

This is our main Sunday service, and includes Hymns and some sung liturgy. Usually lasts for about an hour or so and is family friendly. Simple Creche facilitates with some activities for our younger members are included in the main worship space so that family members are not excluded from the service. Usually the music is led by our organist and a Music Group and includes both traditional hymns and more modern Worship Songs.

On the first Sunday of each month we try to follow a simpler and more modern liturgy and keep the service to just an hour in length.

6.30pm Evensong

An evening service based around the Evensong tradition but adapted because we do not have a Choir. There are hymns and songs and settings for the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis in a metrical style. 

On the first Sunday each month the evening service will be Holy Communion.




9.30am morning Holy Communion Service

A simple Communion service that is mainly spoken, but usually ends with a hymn or song. 




7.00pm Bible Study Group - usually in the Vicarage on South Baileygate

An opportunity to study together and learn together. More details will be added to our 'Bible Studies' page which can be accessed from our Home Page navigation section.
