Before 1868 local people had to walk to Kirkburton to go to church.
The church is built of local stone with a stone slate roof, and is a Grade I listed building. There are a number of stained glass windows including the main East window and one of the finest modern stained glass art deco windows in Yorkshire by Christopher Whall. There is a beautifully decorated and gilded medieval ceiling over the nave. The pews are also ancient, with some of them being prereformation.
There are a number of 17th and 18th Century books, a 16th Century lectern and a 17th Century chalice is on loan to York Minister. Also see fragments of a Saxon cross, squint and interesting memorials. The organ is a three manual instrument originally built by Peter Connacher of Huddersfield. The bell tower contains a chiming clock and a peal of eight bells, which are rung on a regular basis by an enthusiastic team of local ringers and which regularly attracts visiting teams.
We are a friendly and welcoming Christian community located in a village setting to the south of Huddersfield. We are blessed with a beautiful old church which can seat about 440 people and which fills you with a sense of wonder when you consider how God has been worshipped in this same building for eight centuries.
