Welcome to our Website
About our Church
Church is closed until further notice - there are no services.
There is a separate folder of materials for home worshp, including Karen's Sunday sermons, and material for Palm Sunday and Holy Week.
The BBC's Easter plans can be seen here
Don't forget we have a FaceBook page - St Paul's Church Birkenshaw. We also now have a private FaceBook group (St Paul's Birkenshaw), which you can apply to join; it is limited to church members and friends, so it's a safe place to share your thoughts if you're wary of using the whole wide world of FaceBook!
Spotlight In the current situation, we will not be producing the April edition of Spotlight. You can find some of the material that would have been in it in the Spotlight folder.
Hello everyone. As you're all likely to be aware by this point, the church building is closed until further notice. However, this doesn’t mean that there is no church. Church is not cancelled; we are the church! We can still worship together and pray together, but for everyone’s safety we must do it from our own homes.
In these challenging times it feels more important than ever that we witness to the love of Christ in our dealings with one another and with the wider world. We cannot go into the church building but we can certainly “be” the church wherever we are, and whatever we're doing.
Last Sunday morning, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, celebrated the Eucharist from Lambeth Palace on BBC Radio 4.
