Julie’s funeral

This has now been arranged for 1.00 on Wednesday 22 December at St Michael’s; the Bishop of Bradford will lead the service. We’ll look at the expected numbers and the Covid-safe capacity of the church and see whether or not we will need to ask those from our own parishes (over and above those the family will know are coming) to book places.

The Revd Julie Roberts

It is with great sadness that we heard this morning that our colleague the Revd Julie Roberts, who has served in our parishes for nine years now, died in the early hours of this morning; she has been surrounded by prayers and love over the time this has been known to be coming.  She’s be the first to have wanted this announcement to be one of Christian hope ‘for we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him… therefore encourage one another with these words’ (I Thessalonians 4.14, 18).

Carol Service Update

Covid Omicron Risk Assessment

We are really sorry but we have now had to agree a maximum capacity of 150 people.  If we become full we will then have to turn others away – although we hope it doesn’t come to that.

Carol Service 6.00 5th December

We did a Covid safe analysis on 26 November and, although we couldn’t safely accommodate the very large numbers we’ve had at this Carol Service in the years up to and including 2019, we’d hope to have room for an anticipated congregation of up to 100 or so, and we’d encourage mask-wearing.
