LATEST UPDATE – Church Buildings and Services

The PCC have taken the decision with regret that the safest option during this national lockdown is to close public worship and instead live stream our weekly Sunday service from St John’s Church. This fits with the Government’s instruction to Stay at Home. Every Sunday you can join us at 10am via our Facebook page for a live service from St John’s. The service will also be available later (on catch up!) from our YouTube channel. So you can follow the service, the weekly service booklet is available on our website under ‘News and Info >  Notice Sheet’.

As in the two previous lockdowns we will resume Virtual Coffee via Zoom every Sunday at 11am. Chat with friends, catch up on news and just take the opportunity to ‘see’ people who you may not get chance to otherwise. If you are signed up to our email list, you will have received a ‘Message from Sandra’ which contains the link to follow but if not, contact Canon Sandra through the ‘Contact Us’ page. Of course we advise you to bring a beverage of your choice!

During this time, the church community is very much open and alive. There is still much on this website (see ‘Latest News’) and on our Facebook page to help worship, study and prayer. Please do have a look, there is something for every age!

Welcome to the Parish of Baildon

Welcome to the Church of England in Baildon. We have three churches, St John’s Parish Church, St James’ Church and St Hugh’s. Our Churches are a witness to God’s love in this community as we meet together for prayer and worship every Sunday and serve this community in all sorts of ways. You will find a warm welcome at any of our churches and we are always here for you.
