Worship lies at the heart of the Christian Foundation of the Hospital and Christian life. St Paul’s letter to the Colossians 3:2 instructs:

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.

Worship focuses our minds—and hearts—on eternity. Worship has the ability both to inform us and transform us. When we worship, we remember who God is and who we are to be as God’s people.

At Archbishop Holgate Hospital our services are held in Holy Cross Chapel and are centred around the Mass (Holy Communion) with the Daily Offices and devotional services. Here you will find details of our services and ways in which you can share the life of prayer and worship with us.

Our worship follows ancient patterns and rhythms which connect us to God, to each other and the rest of creation through each season of the year and every transition in life.

St Paul emphasises the unity and diversity in the Church when he wrote to the Corinthians. He said that

The body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.” (1 Corinthians 12:12).

We are all part of the body of Christ, but individually, each member has different gifts. As a community we come together to celebrate our relationship with God and each other as Church.

We are located in the Parish of St. Helen’s Hemsworth in the Diocese of Leeds. We have a close relationship with the community at St Helen’s.

Service times and locations may change at short notice.  You can view our weekly Service and Community News sheet. The Service and Community News Sheet also has details of our community activities programme and events.
