Services will be streamed on FaceBook where possible.
St Mary’s and St John’s are now open for congregational worship on Sundays and mid week with Covid prevention measures similar to those followed last time we were open will be in force:
· Masks to be worn unless exempt. Please note, if plastic visors are worn, a face mask covering nose and mouth has to be worn as well.
· 2 metre distance maintained between household bubbles whilst seated and when moving.
· Track and Trace registration either through booking in advance, the QR phone code or the slips provided at the church
· Booking in advance is to be done for St. John's but we will try to work without advance booking at St. Mary's.
· Please follow any instructions as to where to sit given by stewards or on notices. One way systems or separate entrance and exit doors may be in use.
· Singing is done only by the choir.
· Meeting (chatting) between bubbles is not allowed in the building. Outside the building national/ local restrictions on meetings between bubbles apply, please check these.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our churches but would urge you to remember that although things are getting better at the moment the virus is still out there and caution needs to be the watchword for the foreseeable future.
The Bishop of Leeds is pleased to announce the appointment of The Revd Stephanie Hunter, currently Assistant Curate of Cumberworth, Denby, Denby Dale and Shepley as Interim Priest in Charge of Cumberworth, Denby, Denby Dale and Shepley and also as Interim Priest in Charge of Kirkburton in the Huddersfield Episcopal Area.
Stephanie is to be licensed by The Bishop of Huddersfield on Sunday, 27th June at St Nicholas, Cumberworth at 4 pm.
Andrew and I are delighted to be staying and we are both very much looking forward to working with you over the next few years. At the moment, my licensing service will be a smaller affair, but we aim to have a "welcome service" in the Autumn in All Hallows' Kirkburton, when restrictions allow us to do as we might like.
We are happy that St Mary’s church is again open for private prayer each Sunday afternoon from 2.00 - 4.00pm.
Face masks must be worn unless exempt and COVID rules adhered to.
We look forward to seeing you again.
Those who take the parish magazine should have received the June issue by now. As our churches are once again open for services, it may be that you are happy to collect a copy from church rather than having it delivered. If that is so, please let Barry Hambling know (01924 493884) so that he can sort out deliveries for future months.
