• Reopening of our 2 Church Buildings for Private Prayer

    From Sunday 5th July, and each following Sunday until further notice, Kirkheaton Parish Church (St John's) and St Bartholomew's, Grange Moor, will open for people to come in to pray by themselves. St John's will open from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, and St Bartholomew's will open from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

    We hope to resume services in the next few weeks, and will keep you posted on this.

    Until then, different types of service (without a congregation present) are being recorded and uploaded to the parish’s You Tube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaWXi4BZAxb-kT2E9vv7iwQ/videos) every two weeks. If you would like the wording and songs for these services, please telephone the Rector, Ian, on 01484 532410, or email him at rector@kirkheatonchurch.org.uk.

    For the Sundays without a videoed service, Ian is emailing or posting out Morning Prayer sheets, for people to lead their own Morning Prayer services at home. If you would like to receive a Morning Prayer sheet, please contact Ian at the details above.

     

    Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

    Baptisms, weddings and funerals continue to be suspended at both St John's and St Bartholomew's until Sunday services resume (which will be in the next few weeks). Kirkheaton Parish clergy are still leading Church of England funerals at crematoria or at a graveside.

     

    Pastoral Care

    If you need pastoral care for any reason (for example, if you have been bereaved during this pandemic, or you are ill, or you just need someone to talk to), please call or email the Rector via the details above, and Ian or a member of the Lay Pastoral Team will call you back.

     

    Conclusion

    We do hope to resume Sunday services, weddings, baptisms and funerals at St John's, Kirkheaton, and St Bartholomew's, Grange Moor, in the next few weeks, and we will update the website when we know on which date church-based services can resume.

    Until then, I pray for God's peace to rest in you at this anxious time, and for his protection over you and your loved ones. 

     

    Revd Ian Jones, Rector

    "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." (Philippians 4: 6, New International Version)
