We are able to hold a few services provided people wear masks, sit well apart (we have available seats marked out), and don’t hang around to chat or socialise afterwards.
But we don’t plan to have a Carol Service (we can’t sing in church at the moment) or a Crib Service at St Gabriel’s (capacity is small and we are meant to leave the building unused for a period between services).
- Self directed for those with a smartphone
Not quite a Nativity Walk up Main Street, Haworth is being provided by eight posters, each with a bit of the Christmas story and a QR code link to a carol. Stopping places on the way are Haworth Physiotherapy, The Old Registry, Tap & Tonic, The Fleece, The Cloth Store, The Hawthorn, The Black Bull and Haworth Steam Brewery. Visit all or just one!
