WE ARE CLOSED
On Wednesday 13th January 2021, the PCC for St Francis Church, Fixby and St Hilda’s Church Cowcliffe decided in the interests of Public Health to voluntarily close both Churches for public worship. This is for the foreseeable future (subject to Governmental review/advice about the 3rd lockdown)
Whilst we were confidant that our precautions were satisfactory for Covid 19, we noted the fact that the new variant is more virulent and the advice is that it is more easily transmittable. We were also aware of the age profile of the 2 congregations.
We will continue to pray for everyone affected globally and especially for our Cowcliffe & Fixby communities.
We shall however, continue to worship via technology and ALL ARE WELCOME TO JOIN US
our services are:-
10.30am Sunday Service
10.30am Thursday Holy Communion Service
and you can read this week’s sermon here

At St Hilda’s Church we have 3 initiatives which are raising monies for our Building Fun especially the plastering and redecoration of the Nave.
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.
