We will continue to socially distance

We will continue to provide antiseptic gel for you to use if you wish

It will be your choice whether you wish to wear a facemask

We will sing, but are happy to accommodate you if you do not wish to sing – want to wear a face mask while singing or wish to take precautions so you are not “sung at”

Our Sunday Services remain at 9.00am at St Francis Church and 10.00am at St Hilda’s Church

We will continue to pray for everyone affected globally and especially for our Cowcliffe & Fixby communities.

We shall also continue to worship via technology and ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US

At St Hilda’s Church we have 3 initiatives which are raising monies for our Building Fund. Whilst we now have redecorated the Nave (see St Hilda’s Church in photographs page), repairs to the Vestry roof are becoming urgent (buckets & towels down when it rains!!) so we need to continue to raise funds for this repair – sometimes it feels like repainting the Forth Bridge!!

1. Jennifer continues to make face masks. They have a cotton front & back with flannel in the middle and they are available for a donation of £4 each. There are 2 sizes, large & small.  Should you want any of the face masks, you can either visit Ma Baker’s sandwich shop on the Bradford Road near the Fartown traffic lights (open 0900 to 1200 Monday to Friday)  or contact Colin on 07787 518483 and he will arrange a “safe distance” home delivery within the Fixby, Cowcliffe and Bradley areas.

2. Rita is making preserves (jams & jellies ++)

3. Joyce will undertake sewing alterations
