Coronavirus Updates and Information
19 March update – please see the letter from Rev Sharon here: Letter 20.03.20.
Following the Archbishops announcement it is now necessary to stop all Worship Services at St Mary’s Church, therefore, Wednesday and Sunday Services will not be taking place for the foreseeable future.
We are making plans as to how we can best meet the needs of both our regular Church members but also how we can care for our Community during this time. There is a local group called Tingley, Ardsley & Thorpe – Viral Kindness which is supporting those in our Community and I have given a link to them below. They are on Facebook and there are lots of offers of help etc. We are a part of this group and we are offering to keep in contact with those who are self-isolating by phone, especially the elderly who for some loneliness will be a big problem.
If you have a relative that needs support please do not hesitate to contact the Vicarage on 01924 472375 or email me on email@example.com.
Over the next few days and weeks we will work out how we can support you both Spiritually and Pastorally.

May God’s peace be with you.
Welcome to St Mary’s
Our vision is to be an engaging church:
Engaging with God
Engaging with Each Other
Engaging with the Community
Safeguarding – Promoting a Safer Church
The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church. St Mary’s Church, Woodkirk has adopted the Church of England Safeguarding Policy from the House of Bishops.
A copy of the Promoting a Safer Church booklet is displayed on the notice board in the church porch as well as in the Parish Centre, and can be seen by clicking here.
