We are the Diocese of Leeds: Welcoming our Little Angels

Welcoming new members into our church family is the theme for our two films this week in our year long campaign to tell the story of our rich and varied life here in the Diocese of Leeds. The Parish of Seacroft, East Leeds has three churches; St James’s, St Paul’s and St Richard’s and together they serve a community of 35,000 people across Seacroft, Swarcliffe and Whinmoor - home to one of the largest housing estates in the country. The church has over 100 baptisms a year – and serves its community in a variety of different ways – often in partnership with other community groups and organisations. And the message of the church is simple: “God loves this place and its people.” And here in this short film, we get a glimpse of the love it shares with its weekly Little Angels group. So called because this special group of under 5s “uplift the life of the church”.
