NHS70: A Service of Thanksgiving

A service of celebration and thanksgiving for the 70th anniversary of the NHS in the city of Leeds will take place on 11th October at Leeds Minister.

NHS 70 Leeds Minster Service of ThanksgivingThe Reverend Canon Sam Corley, Rector of Leeds Minster, said “We are delighted to be hosting a service to celebrate the contribution of the NHS to the people of Leeds over the past 70 years. Often taken for granted and yet there for us all in times of need, the NHS is physically present at the heart of our communities and our city through a diverse ecology of services, surgeries, clinics and hospitals. Yet of course, so often, it is the people whom we meet on the front line that make the biggest impact through their skill, professionalism and care. There is much to give thanks for! So we look forward to welcoming all with a connection to the NHS as we gather in the presence of God for a service of thanksgiving.” 

On 11th October, at Leeds Minster, contributions will be made from people working in different sectors of the health service and The Rev’d Nicholas Bradbury, a priest, practical theologian, writer and a psychodynamic facilitator who has worked with the NHS, will be preaching.

If you live in Leeds and have been a patient, volunteer or employee in the NHS then you are most welcome to attend Leeds Minster, on 11th October.
