St Wilfrid's Church offers vibrant colourful Anglo-Catholic family-friendly worship with Communion every Sunday. We are part of the Diocese of Leeds in the Church of England. We have a thriving Sunday School, which meets every week apart from the first Sunday of each month, when we worship together in our All-Age Eucharist.
All are welcome to join us at our services, particularly if you have never been to church before.

Our historic building
St Wilfrid’s has the only original entirely wooden spire in the UK, which retains its original wooden shingles & frame.
Our striking and beautiful church building, bridging the gap between Arts & Crafts style and Modernism, was completed in 1939, was designed by Arts & Crafts architect, Albert Randall Wells and features sculptures by Eric Gill and others.
The stone church is impressive in structure, with many large windows giving a beautiful, bright and spacious interior.
We are open for visitors on the first Saturday of every month from 10am – 2pm, after our Sunday 9:15am Communion service until 12:30, and from 11am – 12:30pm on Tuesdays.
