In line with the Church of England across the country, our church building has been closed for worship and private prayer until it is safe to open again – in the meantime it has been used as the base for the Pudsey Community Project.
We are pleased to be able to announce that from Sunday July 12th we are reopening Pudsey Parish Church for private prayer sessions.
You are welcome to visit our church building to enjoy the peace and quiet, and take some time to pray during its open times:
- Sundays 4-5.30pm
- Wednesdays 1-2.30pm
To ensure we are able to keep the building clean and safe, we ask that these sessions be used for individual prayer only or with members only of a small household group, and that if you need to bring children they must remain seated with the responsible adult.
No one with possible coronavirus symptoms or a recent positive test result can come in. Members of the clinically vulnerable groups may wish to keep to the Wednesday sessions.
We are doing everything we can to prepare the building and will have a one-way system, touch-free hand sanitiser stations, and distanced chairs available.
We are moving towards reopening for worship services and expecting they will be starting weekly from Sunday 6 September – please see our website or Facebook page for ongoing updates.
Please see our Pudsey Community Project for the local response we’re spearheading. The drop off sessions are Monday to Saturday 10am-12 when donations to the Project of food, toiletries and money (including the facility to donate by contactless card) are welcomed at those times. We regret that visitors at those times can only donate to the Project at the doors and must not enter the building, for the safety of our volunteers and recipients of food packages. Please stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms and avoid touching surfaces. If you or someone you know needs help please contact the project with the contact details provided and we would be happy to help.
And remember that the church continues to operate 24-7 because the church is more than just the building – and our online services are updated each week, and the church family is supporting one another and praying for the local community all the time.
Do contact the church office if you want to know anything about what we can currently provide or what we will be able to provide in the future.
