We are very pleased indeed to share with you the following announcement, which has been made today (Feb 26) by the Diocese of Leeds: "The Bishop of Leeds is pleased to announce the appointment of The Rev Tom Lusty, currently Incumbent at Bramhope in the Leeds Episcopal Area, as Vicar of the Parish of Upper Wharfedale and Littondale in the Ripon Episcopal Area. "The details of the licensing service will be announced later."
The Parish is still in Vacancy (for now)
Services in our Churches have been suspended for the present because of concerns over the increased spread of coronavirus. The situation will be reviewed and services will be resumed when it appears safe to do so. Please click the image below for our latest Online Service.
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.
Currently, because of concerns due to the increased spread of the coronavirus, we have suspended services in our church buildings and also stopped opening them for private, individual prayer. We will monitor the situation and these measures are to be reviewed when appropriate. 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
