Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
With a heavy hearts, following advice from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and the UK Government, Huddersfield Parish Church will be closed until further notice for both public worship and private prayer.
As the Archbishops have wisely said, these precautions are taken because of our responsibility to love our neighbours (not to contribute in any way to the spreading of the COVID-19 corona virus).
It does not mean, however, that we stop being ‘The Church’. Rather, we are invited to experiment – and be creative – with praying, worshipping and serving differently. Some excellent online resources for daily prayer can be found on the Church of England’s website, and via a prayer and worship resource for use at home that is available here on our own website.
Please take every precaution to keep yourself safe and well, including good hygiene and by refraining from physical contact with others.
Our overall aim will be to offer support to those who need it, and the opportunity to continue connecting with God through the ministry of the church throughout the coming days.
Please join us in praying for all who may feel anxious at this time. Please do contact us via telephone, through the website or our social media channels if you need to.
With love and every blessing throughout this unprecedented time.
