Emmanuel Church – Shelley

Thank you for visiting the website of Emmanuel Church Shelley.

We aim to be a church with an open door through which the community is welcome into the church and out of which the church can go into the community. To that end we changed the porch door to glass to bring light into the church and through which people can see that a welcome awaits them.

Emmanuel Church is the only Anglican centre of worship in the village of Shelley. It is a church in a joint benefice with All Hallows Kirkburton and works in a local cluster of 6 churches.

Lent courses 2018

40acts is the generosity challenge for Lent, created by UK Christian charity, Stewardship. For seven years, 40acts has asked a question: what if Lent could be about more than just giving stuff up? What if it could be a time of radical generosity as well as spiritual discipline? To find out more and to take part in the challenge join one of our Lent Groups this year. Have a word with one of our leaders who will be able to give you more information and welcome you into the group.

Tragic accident, Moldgreen, A prayer

A prayer for those involved in the tragic accident on Wakefield Road, Moldgreen on Wednesday morning.

Gracious God, in our grief and shock,

contain and comfort us;

embrace us with love,

give us hope in our confusion

and grace to love those around us.  Amen
