• New Church Service Times (updated 14th Jan 2021)

    PCC met on Monday 11th January (via zoom) and made the decision that sadly our 2 worship centres at Kirkheaton and Grange Moor should close for public worship and for private prayer for the duration of the lockdown.

    The decision was made not only to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus but also to demonstrate support to our communities.

    We were very aware that this will be difficult for some, and that further web streamed services will not be available.  However earlier services are still available on line and a service sheet has been circulated. 

    The Pastoral Team, the Wardens, House Group Leaders and the Parish Office all remain available.  Please do feel you can contact someone.  

    There is also an on line Morning Service on Wednesday mornings at 10.30.  If you would like to receive an invitation via Zoom please contact Sandra Broadhead or Julie Booth.

    The buildings may be closed but the Church certainly is not. 

    Please pass on this information and continue to pray for our Country, Church and Parish.

    Rob Eabry. Vice Chair PCC.
