Similar to last year, primarily due to the continued high energy prices and in order to reduce heating costs, services will NOT take place in every church each Sunday during January, February and March 2024:
Everyone is encouraged to join together at one of the other churches if there is not a service at the one you would usually attend. Let’s stick together (and worship together) during these winter months and keep warm.
Services will be as follows duing February:
4th – St Bartholomew’s Meltham – (Family Sunday Service) 9.30am and St Mary’s Wilshaw (HC) 11:15am
11th St James’ Meltham Mills (HC) 9:30am and St Mary’s Wilshaw (SoW) 11:15am
14th St Bartholomew’s Meltham 7:30pm, Ash Wednesday Holy Communion
18th St James’ Meltham Mills* (HC) 9:30am and St Mary’s Wilshaw (SoW) 11:15am
*note – this is correct – it’s not at St Bart’s as per the parish magazine.
25th Parish Communion 10:30am – St Bartholomew’s Meltham
– The first Sunday in the month (9:30am) will be a Family Sunday service where people of ALL ages can join in the fun.
– The fourth Sunday of the Month will be a Parish Communion Service. All are welcome to share a light lunch together after the service.
– There will be no services taking place at Helme Church due to the lack of heating.
– The mid-week Wednesday service of Holy Communion at St Bartholomew’s will continue as normal each week at 10:30am.
– Toddler Church at St Bartholomew’s will continue as normal on Tuesday mornings each week 9am to 11am (term time only).
