On Thursday 22nd June at 7.30 p.m, after a year without a priest in charge, the congregation of Kirkheaton Parish Chuch and St Bartholomew’s, Grange Moor welcomed  the Revd Ian Jones.  His licensing service took place at the Parish Church, and was led by the Bishop of Leeds, the Rt Revd Nick Baines.
It  was attended by over 200 people, including about 60 who came over from Revd Jones’ previous church in Lancashire, where he had been the Curate.

Since then he has been busy meeting  members of the congregation and the wider community. We wish Ian, his wife Helen and his sons a  happy and fruitful stay in Kirkheaton.
