ST JOHN’S CHURCH: Inn Churches is a Bradford Diocesan project founded in 2010 which opens churches in central Bradford to local homeless and vulnerable people in December, January and February, providing them with accommodation, food, drink and companionship. Members of St John’s have been among the Befrienders and St John’s is delighted to support this unique local success story. More than £1,000 was raised at Christmas services, after large collections of food items during the harvest period and the church looks forward to continuing its assistance into the future. Services on Sunday are 8am holy communion, 9.15am Let’s Worship, 10.30am parish eucharist.
