The new Bishop of West Yorkshire and the Dales visited a Linthwaite school to meet pupils.
The Right Reverend Nick Baines travelled to Linthwaite Ardron C of E Junior and Infant School in Church Lane, where he joined children to celebrate a eucharist.
He was treated to a special sing-song by the school’s 200 students and led the service in the school’s hall.
Right Reverend Nick, who was previously the Bishop of Bradford, took up office in June of last year after the new diocese was created from former dioceses Ripon and Leeds, Bradford and Wakefield.
Since then he has been travelling around the new diocese to meet and greet his new flock.
Headteacher, Eelin Megson, said: “Staff and children were delighted to welcome the bishop to the school and were pleased to give him the opportunity to hear the wonderful singing of our pupils”.
