Current Status Regarding Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic
Please consider donating during this difficult time
Last Updated: 27th April 2020
In light of government advice around Coronavirus the Archbishops have announced a suspension of church services and a closure of our churches for now. Although the buildings are closed the church is still very active and engaged with offering care and practical support to those in need in our congregations and across the town.
We are all aware of the numbers of people self-isolating and we want to reassure you of our love and care and affirm our commitment to help you in any way possible. We are seeking to organise this at a congregational level so do get in touch with your local clergy, church wardens or the parish office if there is anything that we can do to help you at this time.
It is expected that 4000 people will have to self isolate in Keighley over the coming weeks and will therefore need food & meds to be delivered. In addition there will be people out of work and unable to afford food. It is estimated that as many as 700 households may need support!
The Keighley Hub is set up and operating to deliver shopping and medication to those in need. You can find information about the programme and sign up to be a volunteer at peoplecanbradforddistrict.org.uk. The local work is also being supported by Keighley Volunteer Centre and you can find out more on their website or by contacting them 01535 609506. Our churches may become distribution centres and local hubs.
Bradford Council Contact Centre are handling enquiries and sharing information with the . The contact centre will also connect vulnerable people to the right support. 01274 431000
Please do continue to pray for our government, local councils, NHS staff and all involved in responding to this crisis.
