The licensing service was held on 30 January 2019 and was a wonderful celebration to welcome your new vicar …..
Janice, our Vicar, retired at the end of January 2018 and we wish her every success in whatever she does. We offer our heartfelt thanks for all she has achieved and for all she has done for us.
THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU -WE COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU
As we come to the end of this interregnum we must say thank you to the St Giles Family for their help, guidance and support.
We must also say a big thank you to our visiting clergy. Not only have we had to arrange clergy cover but sadly we have had to arrange organist cover and we thank Bob Baker and Lydia Cooper for stepping in and playing for us.
Our grateful thanks go to so many people and it is impossible to list them all here BUT we must mention Jonathan Slater, our Reader. We cannot thank Jonathan enough for all the help and guidance he has given us. Thank you so much Jonathan.
Thank you to all those who supported our fundraising events – Afternoon Tea, Harvest Lunch and our Boiler Appeal.
During the year we also enjoyed two wonderful concerts, one by Chorus Choir organised by the Parish Council and the other organised by Lydia Cooper on behalf of UNICEF. This concert showcased our very talented young people.
On 30 January, 2019 a new era begins. The Licensing Service of the Revd Tom Lusty takes place and the Bishop of Kirkstall, Paul Slater, will be officiating. We look forward to welcoming you to this special service and we wish Tom, Helen, John and Mark every happiness as they start their new life in Bramhope and St Giles.
With our very best wishes
