Welcome to the churches of Little Horton in Bradford
You will find links to All Saints and St Oswald's churches above.
All Saints and St Oswald's are two of the four churches in the AMOS cluster of Churches in Bradford 5;
All Saints, St Matthew's, St Oswald's, St Stephen's.
On Sunday 13th December, both churches are holding a Memorial Service for families who have been bereaved. We read out names of the departed and offer the chance to write a name or a prayer on a card to put on the tree, and place a lighted candle on the altar. Services are at the usual time, but without Holy Communion. Let us know of any names to include on our list.
At the Christingle service on 15th December, children from All Saints and Horton Park schools are given a lighted Christingle; other families are welcome too.
West End Carols by candle-light in St Oswald’s on 16th is open to all.
Nativity Play. Children will perform a Nativity Play on Sunday 20th December at St Oswald’s 9.30 service.
All Saints Carol service on 20th December includes well-known carols, familiar readings and candles everywhere! Delicious food afterwards.
At the Crib service at St Oswald’s on Christmas Eve children and parents hear the Christmas story and place crib figures in the stable.
Midnight Mass at St Oswald’s starts at 11.30 p.m. My mother used to take my brothers and myself to the Midnight service from being quite young, and the magic of that service still haunts me! All are invited to Open House from 10.30 p.m.at the vicarage for mulled wine and mince pies etc.
At the New Year service, we will be invited to renew our Baptism vows. Bring a Christmas present with you that Sunday; share the fun of what was given you, however embarrassing…
Carol-singing at Morrisons at Girlington raised around £1500 for our link dioceses of Northern Sudan last year. This year let’s sing again, on 19th December, and put a smile on shoppers’ faces.
We also sing at St Luke’s Hospital at 6 p.m. on Tuesday 22nd followed by further singing for the hardy of voice at 7 p.m. at Horton Hall Close.
