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’s 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.
View our regular services pattern here or view our Calendar below.
We live-stream our Sunday Service on our Facebook page every week. The weekly service booklet is available on our website so you can follow the service at home – click on ‘Service Sheet and News’ on the tab below.

ST HUGH’S FOOD BANK LUNCHBOX SCHEME
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
We running our annual relief scheme during the summer holidays for Baildon children who normally access free school meals and whose parents/carers are struggling financially. The cost of covering extra food for some families over the six week break can be really challenging. Local primary schools identify families who can benefit from this type of help and we make up weekly packs of supplies which cover breakfasts, lunches and snacks for all school-age children in the family.
We need volunteers who can buy 5 to 10 loaves of bread each week and deliver them to St Hugh’s at 12 noon on Mondays for 6 weeks. Anthea and I really struggle with the volume of shopping we have to do each week and we have the ambitious plan of doubling the number of families we help this year. We need at least 50 loaves of bread each week! Could you help us? We can reimburse you so you’re not out of pocket but we really need to lighten our load. If you can help us please get in touch with me on 07421 328187 or sarah@sthughs.org. Best wishes, Sarah
