The Licensing Service for our new Vicar, the Rev Tom Lusty, is due to be held at 7pm on Monday, June 28, at St Oswald's Church, Arncliffe. We very much hope that the service will be an ‘in-person’ event, though of course this will depend on progress in reducing the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
The Parish is still in Vacancy (for now)
This Sunday, June 20, we will have services of Morning Prayer at St Mary's Church, Kettlewell, at 9.30am, and at St Michael and All Angels Church, Hubberholme, at 11.15am. We have resumed opening our Churches for Private Prayer on Wednesday afternoons between 2pm and 4pm, and on Sundays between 10am and 2pm during weeks when a service is not being held there. The Government has confirmed that some restrictions related to the coronavirus will continue until July 19. Measures such as the wearing of face masks, social distancing and the use of hand sanitisers will therefore continue in our Churches for the time being.

Christian Aid Week
You can still make donations for Christian Aid Week. Just click on the button below to go to a JustGiving page set up by Joanna Clarke, Treasurer of the Upper Wharfedale Churches Together Christian Aid Group.
The church communities of Upper Wharfedale and Littondale aim to be open and welcoming to everyone. We extend the hospitality of Jesus to people of all faiths and none whatever your background or identity.
Whether you are seeking God's presence, looking for information or some help with prayer and worship, we hope that you will discover that God's love is unconditional and within all things.
Keep us, good Lord, Under the shadow of your mercy In this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, And lift up all who are brought low; That we may rejoice in your comfort, Knowing that nothing can separate us from your love In Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Peace to all who enter. God's grace to all who depart
