Holme Christian Community

The pastor at Holme Christian Community Church is Mark Woodhouse. “We are an evangelical church with a real desire to transform our community with the Love of Jesus.  We are a people that see this by living out our faith in the community through both by preaching the uncompromising word of God and by deed in our every day lives. We meet to worship and encounter God on Thursdays at 10.45 am and Sunday mornings at 10.30 am.  Please feel free to come and join us at either of these services.  The church’s weekly news sheet provides all information for the coming week’s events at the church and is available to download from our website www.hccbradford.org.uk
