Welcome to our Parish!

This weekend’s services – July 23rd; Trinity 6:     8.00am – Holy Communion (Book of Common Prayer); Main service at 9.15am – Parish Communion; 6.00pm – Evensong (Book of Common Prayer)
We extend a hearty welcome to Rev. Abbie Palmer, our new curate.  Abbie joined us in a special service on Sunday, July 2nd, following her ordination as Deacon the previous day in Bradford Cathedral.  We are looking forward to having Abbie and her family as part of our church family at St Robert’s.  Make an early opportunity to say hello to them as you see them around and about the Parish.
We are applying for grants to enable us to do vital work towards repairing our ancient (and modern!) buildings so that they continue to provide a focus and amenity base for the community, as well as a sacred space for worship.  Many thanks to those of you, as beneficiaries of the building, who signed the statement of support for this work.  Our urgent need is to make the Chapter House watertight while the Summer weather is here and before the Autumn rains arrive.  In addition to seeking grants, we have been successfully fundraising throughout last year and raised approximately £8,500 as at the end of December; these funds will be applied to the Chapter House roofing requirement as well as other projects.

St Robert of Knaresborough, Pannal is one part of a joint benefice with St Michael and All Angels, Beckwithshaw.
