Poppies for Remembrance

Thank you to Margaret Thorley for her hard work to create 2000 remembrance poppies and thank you to the volunteers who ‘planted’ them. The churchyard is full of this reminder and even on a wet November day they look stunning!

To the church family of Christ the King

The funeral of Revd Peter Rolls will take place on Saturday 16th September at 11.30am in St James Church, Meltham Mills.

In very recent years Peter has had a passion for cake, in fact his eyes would light up at the sight of cake, so after the service everyone is invited to stay, share memories of Peter and join us for a cup of coffee/tea and cake.


Picnic in the Park

Saturday 26th August

11am -4pm

The Parish is providing large games for the Meltham Picnic in the Park and St. James’ will provide a quiet space in church.  We will need help setting up the games at 9.30am.  From 11am we need people to chat to the adults and children who come to play the games and people to be in church for anyone who wants to come for a time of reflection.  If you can help with the games at some point during the day, please email Alison Whiteley:  If you could spend some time in church, please email Jenny Mathers:

Meltham Community Open Day

As many of you know as you’re already involved, there is a ‘Meltham Community Open Day’ on Saturday 29th April from 11am-3pm in both the Carlile Institute and the Crossroads Centre. There will be a stall with information about our Parish.  If you could spare a little time to be there to chat to people, that would be great.  Can you let me know if you can help?
