Church of England Diocese of Leeds Ingrow with Hainworth

Wonderful Welcome: Church and Community Celebrate Together

22 Jan 2019, 9:30 a.m.

"It's really exciting!" - "What a lovely sense of warmth and welcome" - "Great to see inside this beautiful building"
These were some of the comments made by some of the almost 200 people who gathered on Sunday afternoon,
20 Jan 2019, to welcome the new Priest-in-Charge, Revd Dr Tracey Raistrick and Associate Priest, Revd John Ineson.  Church members were joined by the Deputy Lord Lieutenant, David Pearson, the Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Zafar Ali, community representatives and many other well-wishers at the service which was led by the Rt Revd Dr Toby Howarth, Bishop of Bradford.

The theme of the service was hope and thankfulness as Archdeacon Andy Jolley spoke about God's heart for the people of Ingrow and Keighley; to know that the Church of England is committed to working with them to see the very best possible future for the whole community.
