New Year /Epiphany Saturday Discipleship Brunch – TOMORROW

Start 2024 with us reading God’s Word together on Saturday 6th January 2024 – 10.30am – St Paul’s Manningham

Discipleship Groups

We want to launch some groups for people to meet and share their faith journey in different ways.  If you haven’t already can you please fill in the form?

Bubble Church

We are starting Bubble Church in January at St Martin’s Heaton.  This is a new style of service aimed at young children and their families.  Please pray for this new venture and let us know if you feel you can volunteer to help with it.  All the details are on our Bubble Church page.

Giving

We know many of you like to give to our church but can we remind you about the 3 best ways.

1 Parish Giving Scheme – if you pay taxes and give regularly this is the best way – it takes all the admin away from us and works really well.  This organisation is so good it was just bought by the Church of England! Joining the Parish Giving Scheme makes it all so much easier for us – and easier for you too!  Basically you give to them – they claim the tax and give us a bigger gift than you gave! 25% more!

2 Using the Card reader at the back of church.  If it is not working you can give by Card and include Giftaid here. Please remember we can claim 25% back on gifts of £30 and under.

3 Cash in the collection – we like this!  But it is the hardest way for us to process and claim the tax back.  But if you need to give that way – bless you and thank you! Please remember we can claim 25% back on gifts of £30 and under.

United Service for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity

Will be at Bradford Cathedral at 6pm on Sunday 21st January.  This year the theme is: “You shall love the Lord your God …and your neighbour as yourself…”  See here for more details
