Church of England Diocese of Leeds Newsome and Armitage Bridge

Church Buildings Re-opening

24 Feb 2021, 3 p.m.

After much prayer and soul searching I believe that we have to continue to keep the doors to our church buildings closed until Easter! As Easter Sunday is 4th April and restrictions on hairdressers and non-essential shops eases on 12th April I think we can safely say we will hold our Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday services both online and in person in one of our churches but there will be strict social distancing and no mixing of households before or after the services. As there will be many who will want to come to those services we will need to go back to using our booking in system and the tickets for those services will be available from 1st March so please do go online and book at

or email me and I will book a seat for you!

The services will be as follows:-

Maundy Thursday at Newsome at 7pm

Good Friday at South Crosland at 2pm

Eater Sunday at Armitage Bridge at 10am

We will then hope to open one church for Sunday services at 10am each week and these will be available to book on the Ticket Source website as before. This will be dependant on the continuing fall in infection rates and the governments advice on public buildings. If all goes well then the churches will be open as follows.

11th April at Newsome

18th April at South Crosland

25th April at Armitage Bridge

Thank you all for your continued support and patience as we navigate the safest way forward!
