An announcement from St Mary’s, Dunsforth

We are so grateful to all of you who have supported the Dunsforth Draw in 2020. £801 has been handed out in prize money and £1,183 has been raised for the St. Mary’s Church Restoration and Development Fund.

We do hope that you will support us in 2021! The price of a ticket is still just £2 a month (£24 per year). Last year the top prize was £42, and the more people who join in, the bigger the prizes will be this year!

Please let Penny know (01423 322901) if you would like to join or renew in 2021.  You can leave cheques/cash in her postbox at Matteson Farm (if you would rather pay by BACs, please contact Mike Wildblood on 07836 376965 for bank details).

First draw will be on Friday 5th March. We would be grateful to hear from you as soon as possible. Thank you and good luck!


Services Update – February 2021

At the moment we are not meeting on a Sunday regularly or for Wednesday communion services, as with exponentially increasing cases, we feel it is important to minimize the risk to all, especially our vulnerable people, and only go out when we need to in solidarity with our neighbours. During this time either a Youtube service or a live Zoom service (with virtual coffee and conversation after the service) will be held on Sundays

We do recognise the importance of the festivals of the Church to give us balance, pattern and hope, and so we are presently working to find ways to provide safe live services for Candlemas and Ash Wednesday – we will keep you updated about these.

Our Churches will remain available for funerals, private baptisms and emergency weddings. We feel it is important to support our communities in this way.

For those who would like to access services online at the moment, we will be continuing to have compline (night prayer) services every Thursday at 8pm and morning prayer at 9.30am on Mondays, both via Zoom (please contact Rev Karen for the link if you do not have this).

‘Virtual’ Sunday services will be recorded each week and available in the Worship Resources section of this site.

Please see the church services page for the full list of other forthcoming live and virtual services in the New Year.
