St Martin's church is the parish church of the vibrant community of Potternewton, in Chapeltown, Leeds.
Our main service is the 10:00 am Parish Eucharist every Sunday. This is a sung service with organ and choir.
Lay people assist the priest at the altar, read lessons and intercessions, welcome people at the door and offer refreshments at the end of services. Everyone is welcome to volunteer for any of these ministries.
Children are welcome at all our services and a dedicated corner with toys and books is available in church for the younger ones. Appointed volunteers run a Sunday Club in the Parish Institute across the road during the Sunday service, with children joining the rest of the congregation at the time of Holy Communion and giving a short presentation of the work they have done that morning. On the last Sunday of the month, children remain in church taking an active part at different moments; the sermon is replaced by a dynamic presentation with the involvement of children.
Baptisms of children normally take place on the second Sunday of the month during the 10:00 am Parish Eucharist or at 12:00. To arrange a Baptism please contact Fr Nicholas.
We also hold a short Holy Communion service every Wednesday at 9.30 am; an opportunity for some quiet, reflective worship.
St Martin's Institute is a community building affiliated to St Martin's Church. Every Saturday at 12:00 noon we offer here a free meal to people coming from all over the city. The Institute is well used by groups who are regular users and for community functions. St Martin’s Church has always regarded the Institute as a community building which is run for the benefit of the local community. It aims to keep rental of the halls at an affordable rate. Please visit the website to inquire about booking a hall or a room.
