We are very sorry to have to announce that our lovely Rev Moina Bernard passed away in hospital yesterday.

Her brother, Julie Bacon and Karen P were with her. She had collapsed earlier in the day after being unwell for a couple of days.

We are now able to confirm that Moina’s funeral will be here at St Peter’s on Tuesday 23rd February at 1pm.

I knew Moina not only the court chaplaincy service but also as a dear friend. She was always warm , friendly and compassionate with everyone she met and approached each situation with good common sense.We will all miss her at court, defendants, solicitors, the court staff and her court chaplaincy family but I’ll miss her lovely sense of humour in the car on our journey into Bradford when we had a good old chat about everything and anything!
Last year when my dear mum died, Moina was a tower of strength and support, leading mums service with her lovely calm caring manner. I’m so glad I knew you Moina; rest in peacenn1

I was shocked and saddened with the death of Moina.
We worked as part of a team at Bradford Court Chaplaincy Service in the Crown & Magistrates Courts.She was one of our Chaplains.
I also consider her to be a friend.
She was a caring & compassionate person and a lovely collegue to be around
I will miss her terribly.
Rest in peace Moina.

We will all miss Moina greatly. She was a much respected and loved member of our team.
May she rest in peace and rise in glory. Amen

I have worked many times with Moina at Bradford Magistrates Court. Whilst always being compassionate and caring to all people that I referred to her, my abiding memory is of course her warmth and simple common sense that she applied to every situation. But also the fun that she managed to find in what can be often a very serious venue.
Often we would meet on the morning Shuttle bus. I would immersed in my Kindle and she would come on board at Shipley and bring me back to reality with an abrupt, smiling comment.
I will miss her at many levels.
What a woman!

It has taken all week for it to sink in that I won’t see Moina in Court any more. Working there this morning has shown me how much she was respected and loved by all members of staff, solicitors, security and workers in general in the Magistrates court.
I shall really miss her companionship and friendship.
God bless you, Moina

I attended St Christophers Church when Moina was curate there. She was a wonderful lady and a very good friend. I shall miss her a great deal. My thoughts and those of my husband, David, are with her family at this sad time.

I am so sorry to hear of the sad passing of Moina who I had the privelage of meeting through the chaplaincy at Bradford Courts. Moina was a great support for me at the chaplaincy when I needed it. Love and light to you and your family Moina, may you rest in peace. All my love, Cheryl xxx
