The Bishop of Bradford Very Rev. Toby Howorth conducted Sunday’s service at Haworth Church. It was a special and very happy event when he confirmed and baptised two new members of our congregation Susan Clements and Jonathan Newton. Pictured after the service (left to right) are: Reader Rosanne Anderson, Rev. Anthony Bennett, Susan Clements, Jonathan Newton, Bishop Toby, Reader Peter Handley.
Details of all our services for April and May 2023 are on our pew sheet (see link below), including our special services for Holy Week, Easter and the Coronation.
Following an inspection of all the access routes leading to Church and the adjacent car park, the Church Warden and the Health and Safety Officer have taken the reluctant decision to cancel tomorrow’s 11.00am service at St Michael and All Angels.
Conditions underfoot are extremely hazardous and more snow and freezing temperatures are expected overnight. This would make already difficult conditions under foot even more treacherous and the safety of both regular congregation and visitors is our prime concern.
Please note that tonight’s Lent group (8th March) has been cancelled due to the snow and risk of freezing and icy conditions in Stanbury.

The Church’s support organisation, the Friends of the Brontës’ Church, recently reported that it made a profit of £12,700 during 2022. The money was generated by sales from the Friends’ retail stand and from the church’s static religious book and souvenir stand.
Peter Breed, the chairman of the Friends, said: “We’re delighted that our efforts have yielded such a positive result and we shall now be consulting with the Parochial Church Council to see how we may best support any of the projects that will be undertaken during 2023.”
During the last ten years the Friends have raised £80,000 and have contributed to a number of improvements and projects within St Michael and All Angel’s including a contributing towards the purchase of a new central heating system; the church redecoration, provision of votive candles (pictured) and a new lighting installation.
Please note that we now just have one phone number for all enquiries: 07891183682

The passageway between Main Street and Church Street (the one running between the Church’s north wall and 121 Main Street as pictured) will be temporarily be closed during January.
The closure is necessary to enable scaffolding to be erected in the passageway to undertake the repair and restoration of the roof at 121 Main Street.
The Church has been told that the works will commence on Saturday, 7th January 2023 and are scheduled to be completed by the end of the month.
As with any outside work undertaken at this time of year any inclement weather conditions could impact on the work schedule and this will have to be borne in mind.
Haworth Parish Church apologises for any inconvenience this may cause. The repair and restoration has been been undertaken in January on the grounds that it would reduce the impact on both residents and visitors to Haworth.
