We are the Parish of Christ the King – four churches serving the village of Meltham and the surrounding areas of Helme, Meltham Mills and Wilshaw. Here you will find all the latest info about what is going on in and around the Parish.
Following the closure of our church buildings due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we can now begin to reopen them. However this will not happen with the celebration and fanfare that you may have hoped. The pandemic may be under control, but it is not yet over. Our reopening will need to be controlled and restrained, carefully thought through, cautious, and above all else safe.
Initially we will hold prayer services lasting approx. 30 minutes and will not include Communion or hymns. We will have to stay within a safe capacity of around 30 people in each service and if this capacity is reached we will sadly have no choice but to turn people away.
We will however be continuing to conduct a weekly Parish Communion service on-line – please find links to all our services on the ONLINE SERVICES page listed on the menu bar. Please see the NEWS section for planned services and their time and locations.
