St Saviour

Welcome to St Saviour's Ravensthorpe. Our parish also covers Thornhill Lees and Savile Town. Come and visit us - we hope you will find we are a friendly bunch with a deep love of Our Lord and commitment to each other and our neighbourhood. We have kept together during the pandemic and are keen to build our future with confidence. 

Measures are in place to keep you safe as we come out of Covid-19 restrictions, and we ask for your co-operation in observing them. There are people on hand to help you with them.

We are a "Resolution" parish under the episcopal care of the Bishop of Wakefield.

We are open for public worship on Sundays at 10 a.m. and Wednesdays at 6.30 p.m. (church open for private prayer from 5.30 p.m.). There is also a mass at 12 noon on Thursdays.

Since the summer, we have been sharing "Lectio Divina" (holy reading) on Wednesdays before mass. This usually involves reflecting on the Gospel for the coming Sunday, in an informally structured way. You are welcome to come and try it; it does not involve anything other than listening out for the Spirit of God.

All services continue to be streamed on our 'Savvylove' Facebook Group page (replacing 'Saviour's Love' which has been hijacked!)

In relation to the Covid-pandemic, our plan is still one of thoughtfulness towards others and a realisation some of us have compromised immune systems: we request that facemasks continue to be worn when coming up for holy communion but it is your decision whether to wear them once in a pew. Please sanitise your hands on entry and leaving the building and before receiving holy communion. A chalice is available if you wish to dip your host into the Precious Blood. The Exchange of Peace continues to be at a distance. Apart from that we remain the happy and holy people of God!
