Annual Temple Newsam Service – 20 September 2020 at 6.00pm

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic this year’s service will be going ahead but in a very different format. Watch the video here from 6pm on Sunday.

This year the Service of Holy Communion held annually on the anniversary of the transfer of Temple Newsam House to Leeds City Council will have a special significance as it is the 500th Anniversary of the House being built. Due to the current situation with COVID-19, and following the Government guidelines for social distancing, the Service will be delivered via an online format to ensure that the safety and well being of all our citizens is preserved. This year, the pre-recorded Solemn Eucharist Service led by Rev M Peat from St Mary’s Church, Whitkirk will include readings from both the Lord Mayor, Cllr Eileen Taylor and the Earl of Halifax and will be broadcast at 6pm on Sunday 20 September 2020. You can watch here, or on the St Mary’s Church YouTube Channel.

We hope that you will be able to join us for this special event.
