From Sunday 13th January there will be some changes to our usual services at St Oswald’s Church Guiseley.
8am Book of Common Prayer Holy Communion Service
9.30am Every Second Sunday in the month we will hold an All-age service. At this contemporary, interactive service we welcome people of all ages, and it lasts around 40 minutes. Please note that there is no Sunday School as children will take part in the service.
10.30am Second Sundays of February and March only, Choral Matins
11.15am Every Second Sunday – Choral Matins – for those who prefer a more traditional format, with music sung by The Choir of St Oswald’s Church. There is no Holy Communion during this service
6pm Choral Evensong with the Choir of St Oswald’s Church.
Please do join us at these or any of our services – everyone is welcome.
Epiphany (‘manifestation’) is an occasion to celebrate one element in the story of Christ’s birth: the visit of the far-travelled magi, understood as the manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles. Matthew’s account speaks simply of ‘wise men from the east’; later tradition fixed their number at three, made them kings and recalled their resonant names – Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar.
Our Epiphany Service will take place at 9.30am on Sunday 6th January at St Oswald’s Church Guiseley, when we will also ‘bless the chalks’ used to mark our churches and houses for the new year.
The service will be followed by ‘open-house’ refreshments at the Rectory from 11am. All welcome!
Season’s Greetings from the Parish of Guiseley with Esholt. We have lots of services and events over the festive season and hope you will be able to join us at St Oswald’s Church in Guiseley or St Paul’s in Esholt.
The Rector and PCC wish you a very Happy Christmas and a blessed New Year.
Join us at 6pm on Sunday 16th December for a traditional service of Nine Lessons and Carols, sung by the Choir of St Oswald’s Guiseley. Mulled wine and mince pies will be served afterwards – we hope you can join us!
Thanks to everyone who came to our Christmas Fair – a fantastic turnout. It was great to have the children from St Oswald’s Primary School to sing for us too. Santa even made time in a very busy schedule to drop in and say hello to us – thanks to his team for getting him there!
And as always, to those who ran stalls for us, lugged furniture about and did all the organising – fantastic teamwork – thankyou to you all.
(It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!)
Congratulations to all who were confirmed at St Oswald’s today. We pray for them on the next step of their Christian journey.
Many thanks to Bishop Paul for his ministry at this wonderful service.
