The Parish Magazine

The Flower Team
Our team of flower arrangers, led by Norma Scatchard, meet in the church every Thursday at 10.30 am . The cost of flowers is partially covered by donations.
Our Cleaning Team
Our “Fluffy Dusters” meet in the church on Tuesday mornings at 9am and Thursdays at 10.30am to make church spic and span.
Leeds City Council maintains the grass in Guiseley churchyard; families are technically responsible for their graves. Sadly, the latter are often forgotten, or no family members survive to exercise their responsibility. Then the churchyard can easily get out of control. We always appreciate help with the Churchyard, so if you can spare a couple of hours, please get in touch with the Rector.
Christ in Crisis
This is a scheme where birthday cards are sent to people who have joined the scheme and in return they donate a sum of money which is then used for any emergency at home or abroad. We now need someone w to take over. It would be a shame to let this worthwhile scheme fold. If you can help please contact me as soon as possible, thank you.
