A message from Reverend Simon Cash, Priest in Charge

Dear friends

Some of you may not be aware but 2016 marks the 100th Anniversary of the completion and consecration of St Winifred’s Church, Holbeck. Throughout its 100 year history is has stood as a memorial to the wife of the 6th Duke of Portland and continues to be a place where people from the Estate and further afield as well as its owners come to worship regularly. It is a charming little church in a beautiful, peaceful setting and the services held on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays every month at 11.45am are friendly and welcoming. Both services of Holy Communion and Morning Prayer are taken from the Book of Common prayer with its magnificent Shakespearean language and hymns accompanied by the organ.

As a church community we shall be celebrating its 100th anniversary by holding a service in the church on Wednesday 20th July at 6pm with the Welbeck Band in attendance. This will be followed on Friday 22nd July with a Flower Festival with Crafts, which will run through to Sunday 24th July ending with a service of Evensong at 6pm on the Sunday evening. These celebrations will also mark the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and the theme of the weekend will reflect this. We do hope that you will feel able to come along to the church and join us in celebrating this significant event in time.

With every blessing

Simon
