Our current COVID precautions

To help reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus you must wear a face covering at all times when in the church or Community Centre, except when receiving communion, eating or drinking, unless you are medically exempt.

We suggest that you continue to take precautions such as taking regular rapid lateral flow tests, keeping your distance, and being respectful of the wishes of others. You’ll still need to sanitise your hands as you enter the building, and avoid handshakes during the Peace.

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, remember that you must self-isolate and get a PCR test. As always, we will continue to stream all our services live on our website and YouTube channel, as well as make them available to listen to later by phone or podcast.

As always, we are keeping a close watch on things such as infection rates, as well as guidance from the Government, NHS, and the Church of England, and we may make other changes to our safety measures in the future.

The Rhythm of Life

Continues this Thursday 27 January at 7.30 pm
St Mary’s Church, Whitkirk

As Christians, we believe Jesus should be at the heart of our rhythms of life, whatever our circumstances. This will have a far-reaching impact on our own wellbeing and the good of others – on our loving, living and learning. This course involves individual commitments, accessing resources and mutual support. Feel free to join us for any session – you don’t need to have attended previous ones.

Eucharist for Candlemas

Wednesday 2 February at 10.00 am

All are welcome to join us as we mark the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.

Following this service, there will be tea and coffee available in the church.

Choral Evensong sung by the Girls’ Choir of Bradford Cathedral

Sunday 6 February at 4.30 pm

The liturgy of Evensong is taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. It is renowned for the beauty and richness of its language including Myles Coverdale’s translation of the psalms. The service includes hymns, readings, a sermon and prayers. The choristers sing the Psalm, the Magnificat, the Nunc Dimittis and an Anthem.

Please note the earlier than usual start time of 4.30 pm.

Join us after the service for refreshments

You are warmly invited to join us after the service for refreshments in our Community Centre.

You must wear a face covering (unless you are exempt) whilst moving around the building, and please stay seated whilst enjoying your drinks.
