Welcome to St Aidan's Church Leeds
One of our FoodShare volunteers from All Hallows in Bardsey, Dr Claire Dickson, is taking part in Endure24, an endurance race involving five mile loops for 24 hours. Claire is running as part of a team of 3, aiming to complete 6 loops/30 miles.
Claire has been very involved with the FoodShare from the beginning of the first lockdown, dropping off donations from Bardsey and East Keswick, and volunteering during the week and on Saturdays. She is particularly passionate about our ‘Nappy & Baby Food’ Project. Any money she raises will go to support this aspect of our work.
Please donate if you can, by clicking on the button below and share the link with family and friends, encouraging them to give:

St Aidan’s Parochial Church Council has applied a cautious response to the Lifting of Restrictions of 19 July 2021.
Please read the above document titled ‘PCC Response’ outlining our current position about worshipping at St Aidan’s at the Sunday Mass, for Baptisms and Funerals, including a top limit of 80 worshippers at any of our services.
Please take particular note about a continuation of some physical distancing, the availability of a small unrestricted seating area, singing and our strong recommendation and encouragement to us all to continue wearing face masks/coverings.

We are aware that members of our congregation and visitors hold varying opinions in these areas, but please bear with us and bear with each other in love, patience and generosity.
From 2 August, Mother Andi will be on Sabbatical. As part of her study leave, Mother Andi will spend time at the monastery at Mirfield with the Community of the Resurrection. She will visit her Mum in Germany; she has a stack of theological books to read and study; and has lined up conversations and visits exploring a ‘Theology of Transience’. Please pray for her, as she is praying for us.
Our weekly FoodShare continues to reach a great number of the most vulnerable people of our local community each week. Thank you to all donors and volunteers – we could not do it without you! FoodShare runs on Saturdays between 10.30am and 12noon in St Aidan’s Church. All in need of food are welcome.
Please pray for those who need us in order to access food, please pray for our volunteers and supporters - and consider yourself, whether there are ways in which you can support this vital ministry.

Inter Faith Week 2020 Celebration
(with contribution from St Aidans Food Share)
Home of the Brangwyn Mosaics, St Aidan's is a church where people of many different backgrounds, cultures and languages seek to live out the gospel of love and reconciliation by serving the local community, especially those living on the margins of society.
And at the heart of it all: the Mass with its rich liturgy and great gestures, its unconditional welcome and its grace-given compassion. Celebrated on Sundays at 10.00am and also on several weekdays, it anchors us in the mystery of Christ's self-giving love, sets us on the path of life and calls our response in love and service.
All are welcome.

God calls us to grow in knowledge and love of him every day of our lives. Time spent in prayer, study and reflection are good opportunities to respond to this call. Please follow the link below to read Mother Andi's Thought for the Week, Professor Joyce Hills's latest column, or a guest reflection.
"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
