St George's Church, Lupset

St George's PCC met on 7th July to consider how we can safely open the church for worship. We decided that the first service back in church will be on Sunday 19th July at 10.45. There is a lot to do to prepare and information about returning to church will be posted on this page in a few days time. The online service will continue on a Sunday morning at 10.45 as we know that, at the moment, for many people coming back to the church building would not be the right thing to do. Join St George's for Morning Worship on Facebook at 10am Monday to Thursday. The prayers and readings for all the Sunday services in July can be found on the right side bar of the 'Whats on' page. We continue to pray for all those involved in working to help people recover from Covid 19 and for those searching for ways to eradicate the disease. Please keep yourselves safe and if we can help you or pray for you do let us know by using the forms on this website. There is a letter from Bishop Nick in our News posts

Welcome to St George's Church, Lupset

St George's Church, St George's Road, off Broadway, Lupset WF2 8AA

We are preparing to reopen St George's Church on Sunday 19th July. This will be a service without Holy Communion at the moment as the PCC decided to take the reopening slowly.

We know that although the spread of Covid 19 is much reduced it has not gone away and the care and safety of everyone is our priority. The plans for returning are very thorough and you can read the Risk assessment for reopening St George's here. If you are thinking of coming to church in the next few weeks please let the vicar know using the phone number or e-mail at the top of this page so that you can receive information about the arrangements we have made.

Throughout this time we have been fortunate to have Sunday services streamed on Facebook and there have been regular services through the week. This has helped people to worship in their own homes and to stay in touch with St George's. We thank Rev Martine and all her family for making this possible. These streamed Sunday services will continue for the forseeable future as we move through this gradual reopening.

We continue to be here for our community and for each other, we will continue to support and care for each other in many ways and, with God’s help, we will learn and grow through this.

Do keep praying for those who are health professionals dealing with the virus, for those who are ill, for our nation, community and ourselves at this time.

Foodbank continues to run from the Community Centre at St George's and they appreciate donations of food if you wish to support them. They are also providing othher support for people who are not able to leave their homes or need help again to move back to a normal life. Their number is 01924 369631. See their website for who they are able to help and what they can offer.

Please join us as we continue to pray for:

Those working hard to deal with this situation especially in our hospitals

Our government and the scientific advisers

Those families who have a tough time ahead

For ourselves that we keep free of the virus

And let us thank God that this is a beautiful world and that we are all loved as God's Children. Let us share that love in every encounter we have in the coming days and weeks.

With every blessing,

Revd Martine Crabtree

St George’s Church Lupset and St James’ Church Thornes
