A Letter from Gillian – Church warden


The forty days of Lent are a reminder that it is possible to find space and to allow God to find you – no matter where you are.

Members of our Churches together community have the opportunity to join in the Lent course at the Methodist Church, Wakefield Road – 7.30pm on the following dates in March – 6th, 13th and 20th. Do avail yourselves of those opportunities.

This season brings change for us all at All Saints’: we welcomed Sarah and her family at her Licensing service on February 26th. We look forward to her ministry among us. The service was shared by people who travelled from many parts of our Episcopal area and some from much further afield. Sarah’s choice of liturgy and hymnody was very powerful and motivational.


At the time of writing we are experiencing a week of Arctic weather; the snow drops which were in abundance at High Hoyland are bound to be blanketed; once we have the thaw make an effort to visit the church yard – in sunlight they will take your breath away. They will be joined very soon with bluebells and daffodils- let’s hope that all will make Easter sunrise morning a true delight around 6.10am.

A Lenten Prayer

Be silent.

Be still.



Before your God

Say nothing.

Ask nothing

Be silent.

Be still.

Let your God

Look upon you

That is all.
