St Mary the Blessed Virgin


We're sorry to say that until further notice all services, events and activities held at church are suspended due to the Covid-19 outbreak. This suspension is likely to last months, rather than days. This includes all worship, prayer groups, Mothers' Union, social groups and the PCC meetings. We will of course keep you updated as to when things start to return to normal. Thank you for bearing with us.

The parish of Gomersal: St Mary is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Leeds’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. Please see also

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
