September 5th was a special day for the Parish of Christ the King, Meltham. The instillation of the new vicar Rev. John Dracup took place in a heart-warming ceremony at St. bartholomew’s Church, Meltham. The Bishop of Huddersfield Jonathan Gibbs led the service to a full congregation.

We would like to extend a warm welcome to Rev. John and his lovely family and hope they settle in well to our village life.
