Promoting a safe church.
Christian communities should be places where all people feel welcomed respected and safe from abuse.
Our Church is committed to encouraging an environment where all people, and especially those who may be vulnerable for any reason, are able to worship and pursue their faith journey with encouragement and in safety. To this end we have adopted the House of Bishop’s Child Protection Policy “Protecting all God’s Children and their policy for safeguarding adults in the Church of England “Promoting a safe Church” as the basis for our own Church policy and practice document.A copy of these documents are in kept in our churches for inspection or can be found here on line.
If you have any concerns about any child or adults welfare please contact our Parish Safegaurding Officer Karen Batty on 01924 503547.

St Mary’s Church Mirfield
Please Help Us Look After Our Churchyard
In light of the recent Lockdown on 5/1/21 and after taking further advice the Mirfield Team Parish PCC have made the following changes to the worship pattern:
No Midweek Services on Wednesday or Thursday – to cease with immediate effect.
No Open Church, in its present format, at either St Mary’s or St John’s.
St Mary’s – To live stream one Sunday morning Eucharist service from 10:30 am with a limited number of personnel, i.e. 5/6people.
St John’s – would be open for INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE PRAYER ONLY – for a single hour from 2pm until 3pm on Sunday afternoons, with social distancing strictly adhered to.
We are sorry that this means that the services with congregations we had come to enjoy again will have to cease for the time being. We will continue to reach out to as many as possible online and through Pastoral contact. We will keep this situation under review with the aim of returning to congregational worship as soon as it is safe to do so.
Rev’d Hugh Baker (Vicar of Mirfield) On behalf of the Mirfield Team Parish PCC.
