Congratulations to Revd. Tom Lusty, Team Vicar at St. Chad’s on his appointment as Vicar of St. Giles Bramhope. Tom will take up his appointment at the end of January. We pray for Tom, Helen and the boys and the congregation of St. Chad’s as they prepare for Tom’s move.

Eco-tips: The location of your fridge can make a difference in how energy efficient it is. Make sure it is out of direct sunlight and not close to the oven. Keeping it against an outside wall will help the heat it generates escape easily, and always make sure that there is a few inches’ space all around the fridge so that air can circulate.


Charity of the Season: Leeds Northwest Food Bank

We have experienced a 28.9% increase in the number of parcels we have given out in the last 6 months over the same period of time last year and we anticipate that this trend will continue or increase further with the rollout of Universal Credit.  Therefore, your continued support is extremely important.


If any individuals or groups would like to decorate the window sills for Christmas, please see Glynis.

We are looking for someone to co-ordinate the lesson readers and intercessors rota. If you can help, please get in touch.
