Otley Road Carriageway Resurfacing
Work continues on the section of road between the roundabout at the top of Park Road /Warren Lane and Spring Lane.  

Phase A is work on the roundabout on Sunday 22 August from 7.30 am - 7.00 pm. The letter says, "There will be no access through the roundabout to Otley Road."

Phase B is work between the roundabout and Spring Lane, which will be carried out on weekdays Monday 23rd & Tuesday 24th August from 9.30 am - 7.00 pm.  "The full extent will be closed to traffic on 23/24th.  Access for businesses and residences will be maintained when safe to do so, but long delays are possible.  Areas will be protected by smaller closures and / or traffic lights as the work progresses.  Access will change each day and possibly during the day"
Mission Giving 
From Rev Barbara Walls, on behalf of the Bingley Foodbank"To the generous people of Eldwick Church from Bingley Foodbank.  Jackie has informed me that many of you have been giving her financial donations for the Foodbank so that we can go and buy what we need when there are shortages.  Thank you for this and for the food donations you make.  We would not be able to function without the donations so many people make and on behalf of the Foodbank I want to say thank you.  Incidentally, earlier in the year when we had plenty of some types of food we were able to pass this on to Helen and Gary for the work they are doing in their ‘new’ Parish.  It was really good to see Helen when she came on two occasions to collect the food.    
So thank you for all the help you give us."

We recently sent £300 to Kathryn's Mercy Home, a UK based charity which supports the work of Rev J Jeyapaul with Dalit children and families in Tamil Nadu, South India.  This was on top of our regular monthly giving.  In response, this update:  "Thank you so much for this; your church’s extra gift is greatly appreciated, and will certainly be put to good use. As you will have seen, Rev. Jeyapaul’s work has continued, and valuable support has been given to the communities the hostel girls and elderly ladies come from, as well as other people in the district. He has been greatly encouraged by the support you and others have given, and we are particularly excited that some of the work is done in partnership with the local authorities."
The Bingley Foodbank is currently short of long life milk, tinned custard and jam. 
Calling all jam and chutney makers!  I have lots of jars going spare, various sizes.  Please contact me if you would like any. Thanks Jenny Dunn  07932 624350
Friday Night Bible Takeaway is taking a break for the Summer and will return in September.
Please close the gate! 
If you are the last car out of the car park, please remember to close the gate and latch it at the top.  Many thanks
Holy Communion has now resumed  
We are gradually returning to regular communion services as part of our worship, being mindful of safe practices. This has been agreed by the trustees.
Providing government restrictions do not prevent it, the plan is as follows:

5th September     9.15  Informal communion service
19th September   10.30  Family communion
3rd October          9.15  Informal communion service
17th October        10.30  Family communion

These will be alternately led by Methodist and Anglican ministers. (We do not plan to use the BCP Anglican communion service at the moment, rather we will use a more up to date and accessible form of service).
