    Death of HRH Prince Philip

    If you wish to express your condolences the Church of England has opened an online book of condolence here:





    Dear all

         After much prayer and soul searching I believe that we have to continue to keep the doors to our church buildings closed until Easter! 

         As  Easter Sunday is 4th April and restrictions on hairdressers and non-essential shops eases on 12th April I think we can safely say we  will hold our Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday services both online and in person in one of our churches but there will be strict social distancing and no mixing of households before or after the services.  As there will be many who will want to come to  those services we will need to go back to using our booking in system and the tickets for those services will be available from 1st March so please do go online and book at www.ticketsource.co.uk/church-of-england-parish

    or email me and I will book a seat for you!   

    The services will be as follows:-

    Maundy Thursday at Newsome at 7pm

    Good Friday at South Crosland at 2pm

    Eater Sunday at Armitage Bridge at 10am


    We will then hope to open one church for Sunday services at 10am each week and these will be available to book on the Ticket Source website as before.  This will be dependant on the continuing fall in infection rates and the governments advice on public buildings.  If all goes well then the churches will be open as follows.


    11th April at Newsome

    18th April at South Crosland

    25th April at Armitage Bridge


    Thank you all for your continued support and patience as we navigate the safest way forward!


    Please do stay safe
