LATEST UPDATE – Church Buildings and Services

You will be aware that recently the Government has said that churches can now open for individual private prayer and also that funerals can now take place in church. The Parochial Parish Council of Baildon (the governing body of this Parish) are considering these developments at the present time and are aware that much work needs to be completed before either of these can happen safely. At the centre of all our thinking, planning and praying is the safety of the community of Baildon.

We are therefore working to put everything in place that we can to ensure the safety of all those entering our buildings for whatever purpose. Until we have done that, sadly, our buildings will need to remain closed.

Although the church buildings are closed, the church community is very much open and alive. There is much on this website and on our Facebook page to help worship, study and prayer. Please do have a look, there is something for every age!

ABIGAIL HOUSING
Abigail Housing is climbing a mountain for Refugee Week 2020: #abigailhousingclimbforhope

Between Monday 15th and Wednesday 17th June, residents, staff, volunteers and trustees of Abigail Housing will be collectively taking on the challenge of climbing in steps, Erta Ale, a volcanic mountain in the Afta region of northeastern Ethiopia. We will achieve our 805 steps to the summit of this mountain either climbing the stairs, walking or stepping on the spot. The residents we support have faced many mountains to make their journey to safety and to seek sanctuary here in the UK, we therefore undertake this challenge in solidarity of their plight.

If you would like to support Abigail Housing you can donate £2 to sponsor their efforts using the online donate function on their website: www.abigailhousing.org.uk
