Welcome to our website
The parish was formed in 2006 by merging the adjoining parishes of St Mary and St Monica (which served Cottingley) and Sacred Heart (which served Bingley). We now have two churches in the parish, one from each of the two previous parishes.

Inn Churches/Winter Shelter 2017
Each winter for the last few years, a number of Christian churches in the Bradford district
have joined together to provide overnight shelter for about 12 homeless people overnight from
December to March. This winter (2017 - 2018) SS Mary and Monica parish hosted the shelter from
Monday 11th December to Monday 18th December.
If there is anyone else who would like to volunteer to
help please contact Paddy Spiller 01274 566332 or e-mail
