Welcome to our web site

    Whether you are looking to visit our services, find out more about what we do and the God we believe in, coming to find out more about a wedding or baptism, are a researcher for your family history - or are just looking out of curiosity you’re very welcome.

    We are a church that exists to live out our faith in our community, to share that faith with any who would like to find out more and to support those who have particular needs. We believe God is important for our daily lives and everything we do is to build ourselves and others up to enjoy the “abundant life” that Jesus promised. 

    We serve the area from Dalton out through Kirkheaton, Gawthorpe and Houses Hill to Grange Moor. Our aim in everything we do is to 'Bring God's love into the heart of the community', to each and every person we are in touch with.

    We hope this web site will give you some idea about us and what we do. Please feel free to ask questions, either through the web site or by contacting us directly. 

    Whatever your age or background, and wherever you feel you are on your own spiritual journey, we hope that you will feel welcome.

    Thank You
