We are delighted to announce we have a new Vicar
We are thrilled to welcome our new vicar Cannon Keith Farrow as priest in charge over all four churches in our benefice of West Barnsley. Cannon Keith lives here at the vicarage in Silkstone along with his wife Alison and their dog, Poppy. They're already enjoying settling in and look forward to getting to know the community. If you see them in the village please say hello and introduce yourself.
We will be updating this website over the coming months so please keep in touch.
Latest Covid Recommendations
Please note in line with Government and Church of England protocols there are no restrictions with regard to attending church services and gatherings. We continue to supply hand sanitiser and respect that some people may wish to wear masks and keep a safe social distance. Fortunately we have a large church so there is plenty of room if you wish to sit a distance from others during a service.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.
Love your neighbour as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.”
