Situations Vacant. Our church relies on Volunteers and from time to time there are jobs that need to be done. Could you consider some of these ?

Christian Aid: someone to co-ordinate our annual collections.

The Children’s Society: someone to be the new parish contact.

Servers and acolytes: to carry the Cross and Candles at our services.

St. Michael’s Lunch Club, which meets at Muir Court, are looking for drivers. If anyone can help, please contact the Vicar.

Volunteers to be part of our Holy Dusters team.


Macmillan Coffee morning: help organise this on Friday 29th September.

Please see the Vicar or Churchwardens

for more details.


Our new Charity of the Season, is the British Red Cross. They are involved in numerous activities such as finding missing families, First Aid provision, preparing for and responding to emergencies, protecting people in emergency and offering support to refugees.

Please put donations in the box at the back of Church.

Eco Tip of the week: Consider having a couple of meat free days each week – Producing 1kg of beef results in more CO2 emissions than going for a three-hour drive while leaving all the lights on at home! Eating less meat can really reduce your carbon footprint.


Leeds North and West Foodbank is urgently in need of donations. Emergency food parcels for three days are issued to people found to be in food crisis by organisations within the community. Ninety percent of the food distributed is given by the general public.

Please put donations for the Foodbank and Pafras in the boxes at the back of church.

No perishable items please.
