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.


Due to illness we had to cancel our Lent Course, but we hope to be able to run it soon, so watch this space for details......

Our Lent Group course this year is designed to help us in that quest for who we are as the People of God and how we then live out that ‘Being’ in the very real and often difficult world we inhabit. It is based on some of the writings of C. S. Lewis.  Many of you, like me, would have grown up with some of his Narnia books, and by way of introduction we will be showing ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe’ and also a film about Lewis’s life called ‘Shadowlands’ Then during Lent itself there will be 5 evenings set aside when we will consider…

  • Living in the Shadows
  • Living with the Beyond
  • Living with the Unexplained
  • Living with What You Have Been Given      —-   and
  • Living with Absence

I do hope that as many as can will come and join us , to set aside some time to devote to listening to God and letting Him form our lives.
