All Saints Church, Wath upon Dearne and Christ Church, Brampton Bierlow, South Yorkshire, became one parish in 2022. They are part of the Diocese of Sheffield in the Church of England.
The Church is a Community
The church buildings are very different in character. Like people, each is unique. All Saints dates back to Anglo-Saxon times, and Christ Church was built in the 19th Century. While All Saints may be historically impressive, Christ Church has a more intimate atmosphere.
However, the church, first and foremost, is the body of Christ and the community of God’s people in Christ. And as Jesus commanded us to love, we aim to follow this instruction. To that end, we offer you a welcome in the hope that you will find truth, peace, resilience and a better life – the same benefits we receive.
Our aim is to follow Jesus in every area of our lives.
We do this by:
Being a welcoming church - worshipping and growing in faith together
Praying and learning together
Sharing the good news of Jesus
Serving our community
Our Parish Ministers
Hi. I’m Rev. Charles Burton, oversight minister for the benefice of Wath with Brampton. I take most of the services at either church, including baptisms, weddings and funerals.
Hi. I’m Rev. John Parker, associate priest. I support our oversight minister in taking some services and working to reach out to those outside the church.
The Lord’s Prayer
This is the prayer our Saviour, Jesus Christ, gave us.
It is always a great comfort to everyone, wherever they are, in times of trouble.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
The Church Online
The church has had an online presence for many years. However, this grew during the Covid outbreak. Our churches were no exception, and many services were conducted by video. You can view them on our YouTube channel.
The Church of England has a free national phone line to provide a simple way for praise and worship to enter people’s homes. Daily Hope offers music, prayers, reflections, and full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.
The line is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044. It has been set up, particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind, and it’s still in operation now.
Please pass this information on to anyone who would be glad of it.
