Who are All Hallows’ Church?
We are a friendly and welcoming Christian community located in Kirkburton, a village situated to the south of Huddersfield.
We are all shapes and sizes, young and old (although probably with a leaning towards the latter), with a wide mix of members who are outgoing, shy, voluble, quiet, hard-working, creative… ready to laugh at anything, but particularly ourselves. We have a healthy divergence of opinion on many issues, but an ability to work together to get things done and able to make change happen without falling out with each other.
We see involvement with the local community as a key part of our role as Christians and we now have several members trained as pastoral ministers as well as others who link with many of the local organisations. We have two church first schools in the parish as well as a middle school and involvement with these schools has improved considerably over the last few years.
We are blessed with a beautiful 800 year 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.
We are also burdened by an 800 year old building which requires a lot of upkeep, is difficult to heat and has many uncomfortable, historic pews.
