Both Goldthorpe and Hickleton are in the Anglo-Catholic tradition, and worship is based upon the centrality of the Eucharist, and the presence of Christ in the Sacraments.
Our main Parish Masses are held at 9.00am at Hickleton and 10:30 at Goldthorpe on Sunday mornings and are sung using the modern Roman Rite. They are open to all ages and families are encouraged. Incense and Bells are used throughout.
Plainchant Evensong and Benediction is held occasionally. In addition to this, Feast Days and Holy Days of Obligation are celebrated jointly at either of the Churches.
A Sunday School is held every Sunday at Goldthorpe, in the St Michael’s room.
On looking back over the last 75 years I see the best of all good gifts, the gifts of the Holy Communion. Our Lord’s Presence in Sacrament has been the support, the strength and joy of my life. Without it my life would have been such as I tremble to think of, and it is because of all the Blessed Sacrament has been to me that I wish to thank God for it in the most public manner I can. If those who read this will say a prayer for me at Mass when I leave this world……. no words that I can find would express my gratitude.
Written in 1930 by our most generous benefactor, Charles The 2nd Viscount Halifax.
