Thanks to all those who helped to raise a very welcome £1,815 for Christian Aid this year. Well done folks!
Total raised to date: £3,982
The Pennies From Heaven appeal is another fund raising initiative where we are asking friends, family and neighbours to help by setting aside any loose change to help with the upkeep of the church Thanks to all for your continuing support!
As from 1st May 2009 All Saints’ Elton and St James’ Woolfold will remain the names by which our two parish churches are known, but they now come under a single parish, the newly named Parish of Kirklees Valley.
Seven years of fund raising for the new church building eventually realised in excess of £940,000 and allowed building work to commence in July 2007. Over 90% came directly from parishoners, showing a high level of commitment to developing a new worship centre.
We also enjoyed excellent support from many other benefactors (see below).

The Way We Were
By Alice Latimer
A lifelong resident of Elton and member of its parish church is using her rich memories of the past to build for the future.
Alice Latimer has written a book, entitled "The Way We Were", in which she recalls her own younger days and the people and events of old Elton in order to raise funds for the new All Saints Church and Parish Centre.
First published in 2001, she has since sold hundreds of copies, raising over £2,200. Full story, together with some fascinating extracts, can be seen here:

A thank you message from Christian Aid:

A big thank you for all you have done this Christian Aid Week, and all that you continue to do. With your help, we have built a new home for Marcelin. As we handed Marcelin his keys the whole community came to celebrate with him! Thank you to all who have been a part of loving our neighbours in Christian Aid Week this year.
