This year we will produce 24 readings about angels as a countdown to Christmas. If you are already subscribed to our YouTube Channel you will get notifications of each new video daily. If you aren’t subscribed and you’d like to be click here.
Although in the Bible Angels generally appear when you least expect it, our angels will be appearing in your phone or inbox at 8am sharp each morning of Advent.
We will be working through the past 3-4000 years of recorded history and hearing stories of Angels and what messages they brought to God’s people.
Some have not managed to get the YouTube notifications working for them – if you are logged in you can go to https://www.youtube.com/feed/channels and you’ll see a list of all your channels – it’s alphabetical so we’ll be near the bottom.
You will see something like this image below – clicking on the bell gives you options to increase your notifications – if you don’t want to miss anything click ‘All’!
During Coronavirus Lockdown in 2020 many in our churches crocheted hearts and flowers to leave around the Parish with contact details as a visible sign that we are praying for all those who live here. Can you see yours? (Click to see them larger!) #Pray4BD
In July we plan to leave ” Heart Prayer Bombs” around the Parish. If you find one please take a photo and tweet or gram it with the tag #pray4BD. Please share your photo and tag widely if appropriate. There will be a phone number for more private prayer requests.

Today Bishop Toby licensed Clare Leighton to our Parish. The event took place in Lister Park as a prophetic act to say this appointment is for outside the walls of our church. Please pray for Clare as she settles into her new life here with us in Bradford.
the allotments owned by the Parochial Church Council of the Parish of
Girlington, Heaton and Manningham, which includes St Barnabas Church.
The Parochial Church Council met on 3rd November 2019 and debated the many representations from both allotment tenants and the general public that both opposed and supported the sale of this land. After much deliberation the PCC decided to proceed with the sale The 12 allotments have therefore now been sold in their existing form, with no change of use within that transaction and without affecting the rights of the current allotment holders.
allotments are not the Bradford Council Allotments on Heaton Hill – they are a
smaller area between Ashwell Road and Wilmer Drive – behind St Barnabas Church.
Parish believes that everyone has a responsibility to respect God’s creation at
this time of ecological crisis. The Parish is committed to caring for God’s
earth in many ways including a Green Energy Survey on our buildings and
providing green space in all our Church yards for the community.
Parish of Girlington, Heaton and Manningham continues to focus its energy,
efforts and resources on its prime charitable objectives. Every pound made from
sale of the land will be re-invested in the ongoing work and projects that the
churches undertake to benefit all the people of the parish whatever their
background, faith or ethnicity.
