Today in #Meltham we celebrate the Feast of Christ the King which is also the name of our joint Parish of 4 churches which also includes Helme, Meltham Mills and Wilshaw.
Normally we would meet together at Christ Church, Helme to celebrate this our special Patronal Festival which marks the end of the Church year and reminds us that Christ is our Lord and glorified King.
Join us for a special online service of celebration led by Rev’d John Dracup at 10:30am. The link can be found here:
In years gone by, this day would also be called ‘Stir up Sunday’ because of the Post Communion collect – this would also be a reminder to start baking your Christmas cakes and pudding!
Stir up, O Lord,
the wills of your faithful people;
that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works,
may by you be plenteously rewarded;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
