Sunday 19th May 2024 – Pentecost

This Sunday we will be celebrating Pentecost! Pentecost Sunday is a commemoration and celebration of the receiving of the Holy Spirit by the early church.  Churches across Bradford are holding a wonderful public act of witness in City Park in the afternoon.  We will have a 10.30 Communion Service but no Children’s Work, no sermon and no tea and coffee afterwards!  Please prioritise the event in the afternoon over our morning service.  We will meet right in front of the Town Hall.

Our morning service is at 10.30am at St Paul’s Church – a communion service – our reading will be from 2 Corinthians 3:7-18

The live stream of the service is here. We will start streaming at 10.25am – You may be staying home for this service and saving your energy for the Pentecost event so maybe subscribe to our YouTube Channel and you’ll get notifications of each new video.  If you aren’t subscribed and you’d like to be click here.  On Sunday you can watch online – and then meet us in the afternoon!

Notices

(To get notices on this page please email notices@bradfordwest.church – we can’t promise to put all on – but will do our best!)

Love Girlington

Do you live in Girlington? Have a heart for the people of that area? Desire to see God’s Kingdom come in that part of our parish?  If so, you are warmly invited to join a new group meeting each Thursday evening at St Philips Church 7:30pm. We will sing, pray and seek God’s blessing on Girlington. For more information, please speak to Ben.

Giving

There are many in our parish who regularly give to the church through a Direct Debit to our bank account. If you do – firstly thank you so much for your generosity! As we mentioned in the APCM it would be a great help if you transferred across to using the Parish Giving Scheme. As charity rules, tax claims etc become more complicated it is increasingly becoming a big task to claim back the 20% we can get on top of your gift. Joining the Parish Giving Scheme makes it all so much easier for us – and easier for you too!

Also don’t forget that if you give on the card machine as long as your gift is £30 or under we can claim 25% back on that too!

Donations

The Ark Charity Shop at 89 Heights Lane is in need of donations.  They are open on Tues to Sat (11am until 4pm). If you have donations to give, please can you deliver them during opening hours to ensure that they are received in good condition.
