Our Children’s Nativity Service is coming up this Sunday – all welcome, it its sure to be a morning to remember!
Across Woodkirk, Tingley, West and East Ardsley, churches are coming together over Advent to prepare for the coming of Jesus. We are holding a service of reflection and silence every Wednesday in a different church in the area. The first is this Wednesday, 30th November, and another 3 follow through Advent on each Wednesday. During what is a very busy time of preparation, it is a time to pause and think.
Our Christmas Services are now on our calendar, and below. We look forward to seeing you at St Mary’s over the festive period.
We commemorated Remembrance Sunday with two services at St Mary’s today. For the first this morning we were joined by the Royal British Legion and uniformed organisations. The service was a traditional Remembrance service with the act of Remembrance at 11am. Names of those who died from our Parish in the two World Wars were read out from the War Memorial at the back of church.
This evening, a more reflective service was held, remembering not only those who have died in conflict, but also those left behind at home. The congregation created a ‘battlefield’ on the altar, made up of candles and poppies. The poppies reflecting those who have fallen, the candles those who may be medics or support, with the light of Christ in the centre.
