Facilities and features
We're working hard to upgrade them - but they exist already. . .
in theaccessible toilet in the back of church
Limited car parking in the church drive. Parking usually available in the surrounding streets and for big events we ask for permission to use the Karmand Centre carpark next door - which is very big.
We have one child who has autism in our regular congregaton
again we are working to improve this, but we have one already - and a wheelchair in the building
We are a very inclusive church and are used to welcoming people with different mobility issues, physical and mental health conditions
Grad II* listed building because of our gorgeous Salviati mosaic and Wm Morris & Company ceiling in the sanctuary, angels in the spandrels of the nave, and pulpit. Some mousy furniture too.
Music and Worship
We are a great venue for concerts and live music. We had Fiat Lux play here in October and hope this is the first of many. . .
We have a fine Binns of Bradford organ and a fine organist to play it in Peter Richardson.
There used to be one and we are exploring starting a youth choir at the moment.
Well, we had one once and have aspirations. . . one or our children sometimes plays the drums and we welcome newcomer musicians with open arms
