We are the Diocese of Leeds...In Harehills.

‘In Christ there is no foreigner, in Christ we are all kin’ underpins the ministry at St Aidan’s, Harehills, Leeds. Situated in a deprived area just out of the city centre, this is a demanding, challenging and exciting parish in a richly diverse part of Leeds. Home to the Brangwyn Mosaics –1,000sq ft of mosaics telling the story of Aidan’s life, this is a church where people of many different backgrounds, cultures and languages seek to live out the gospel of love and reconciliation by serving the local community, especially those living on the margins of society. It offers twice weekly English classes, a weekly food share, a regular community meal which feeds 70 to 100 people, a Drop In for Asylum seekers and refugees and a weekly Eritrean church service, and Bible study classes. And at the heart of all that it does, is the daily Mass.
