Back In Church!

Returning toPublic Access Worship Services from 19th July 

When you do come back to church things will be a little strange and different. If you would like to know more about how we will be proceeding then click here

FACE COVERINGS

We are strongly recommending that face-coverings are worn whilst in the enclosed space of the Church Building. Wakefield Council now tell us that everyone in an Enclosed Public Place  should wear a Face - Covering. This is for everyone's protection, in the light of current Government and Medical advice, and we may have a limited supply if you do not have any to bring with you. 

Services will still be streamed from the Church Building so if you are not yet ready to come back into church please just follow the usual links to join with us in All Saints Church Building.

URGENT!!!

SPECIAL APPEAL...

Our Leeds Diocese has been supporting our link-diocese of Sudan during this difficult time and has launched an appeal for further funds. There is no government support in the Sudan so the Church there is a key provider of support.

Follow this link - diocese-leeds-launches-new-appeal-support-church-sudan - to find out how you can help.

 

OUR GIVING DURING THE LOCKDOWN

As we continue within the limitations of the Covid-19 Lockdown one area of our Worship Life that is closed to us is that of our giving of Freewill Offerings during the services. I know that some of our regular Worshipping Community are laying their usual gift to one side until such a time as they can come again and give it.

However, the costs of keeping our Mission alive and looking after our buildings continues and so , for those who do usually give in this way we would encourage you to look at our Online Giving page - GIVING ON LINE - where you can give through the page whenever you wish to do so. It is very easy to use and looks like the Give-a-Little machine we have in church. There you can give a preset amount of your choice or you can specify your own gift. 

FUNERALS IN CHURCH

We are now able to hold Funeral Services in Church, but under fairly strict guidelines as to who may attend and in what numbers. As usual you should contact your Funeral Director in the first instance, not the church, in order to arrange this.

CHURCH GOES HOME!

Church began in the homes of the first 'Followers of the Way' so we are going back to our beginnings. We will still try to keep our services going and to upload or Stream them as often as possible, from home.

Morning and Evening Prayer will continue to be said for our Community at 8.00am and 5.30pm whenever and for as long as possible. Please do join with us at those times if you can  -  Most days the Daily Prayer App. prayers and readings will be followed. This is a free App. for Smart Phones and / or Tablets and is very easy to use. If you don't have access to the App then simply set aside these times as and when you can for private prayer.

Holy Communion will be celebrated now from the Church building Sundays @ 10.00am & Wednesdays at 9.30am.

NB It will be necessary to remove some recorded services from the Website to make room for new ones, but they will still be accessible on YouTube even after they have been taken down from our pages.

PRAYER REQUESTS

If you wish to request special prayers for someone or for yourself at this time please send Rev. Mark an e-mail on wattycm@me.com  or call or leave a message on 01977 600207 and they will be included in our weekly prayer lists NB If you do not wish the name(s) to be published on the prayer list on this site please tell me on the e-mail and the name will only be used in prayers in Church. Only Forenames will be published anyway, not surnames.

 

Please do the same if you know of anyone who has died so that we can remember them and their families in our prayers too.
