Concerts, games of bridge, a film screening, a craft fair, a demonstration by a floral expert and a flower festival.
These are some of the events planned as part of our efforts to raise money for the Farnley Tyas Church Development Appeal.
In September we welcome two professional musicians from the Holme Valley, pianist Ruth Aldred and cellist Charlotte Watson, for a Sunday afternoon concert. Their programme, full of accessible, tuneful music, will be followed by tea and cakes.
Charlotte's cello, which was made by her husband, a professional instrument maker, and our new piano, combine to create a magical sound in the resonant acoustic at St Lucius'.
Informality is the keynote, so please drop in for the whole concert or part of it.
In October, Kirklees Borough Organist Gordon Stewart, who gives concerts worldwide, makes his third visit to St Lucius'. He gave a memorable recital in 2015 to help raise funds to restore our organ and returned two years later to open the renovated instrument. A gifted raconteur, you can depend on an entertaining hour.
The previous day, St Lucius' will host a Craft Fair at which local produce – from home-made jams and chutney to cakes and biscuits – will feature strongly. It runs from 10.30am - 4pm.
November 9 sees the return of the Manhattan Sound Swing Band for an evening concert. Its 16 musicians plus singer perform big band standards, from jazz classics to Stevie Wonder and The Beatles.
'Ideas for Christmas' is the theme of a talk-demonstration by the celebrated florist Karen Longbottom on November 20. So if you need tips on how to dress your Christmas table or how to assemble a seasonal wreath, don't miss this event.
On December 4 and 5, there will be screenings of the feature film Home James in which the actor James Mason was filmed revisiting and rediscovering Huddersfield, where he was born in 1909. After the interval, a film starring James Mason will be shown.
