At the heart of a busy city this ancient site of prayer continues to be a place where all are warmly welcomed.
For over thirteen hundred years this has been a centre of Christian mission and worship. Today it stands to the glory of God as a sign of the presence of a Christian community who seek to express the love of God to all who enter the building and who are committed to serving the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales.
This is an active, living church and whether you come to pray quietly or to experience the rhythm of our worship; to explore the architecture and heritage or to appreciate a concert or exhibition, we hope and pray that you will discover something of the love and peace of God revealed in Jesus Christ.
The Very Reverend Jerry Lepine
Dean of Bradford
War broke: and now the Winter of the world
With perishing great darkness closes in.
The foul tornado, centred at Berlin,
Is over all the width of Europe whirled,
Rending the sails of progress. Rent or furled
Are all Art's ensigns. Verse wails. Now begin
Famines of thought and feeling. Love's wine's thin.
The grain of human Autumn rots, down-hurled.
For after Spring had bloomed in early Greece,
And Summer blazed her glory out with Rome,
An Autumn softly fell, a harvest home,
A slow grand age, and rich with all increase.
But now, for us, wild Winter, and the need
Of sowings for new Spring, and blood for seed.
Wilfred Owen (1893 - 1918)

A Pocketful of Psalms
An Exhibition by Vivienne Rowett
Opens Saturday 26th July
In this exhibition Viv has used the embroideries that she has created to illustrate the Psalmss, with the aim that the audience will be drawn to read the texts for the first time or again with some new and fresh thoughts. Thus she calls herself a ‘textile exegete’, ie someone who reads and tries to illuminate and explain, questioning the text by visual - particularly textile - means. This work on the Psalms is small and detailed, with ‘a lot of meaning per square inch’ because it is the result of Viv’s detailed study of the text using commentaries of all kinds, including reference to the Hebrew text.
