Dodworth Church is the Church of England Parish Church for all residents of Dodworth and Gilroyd, but remains the spiritual home for many from the parish who have moved to other parts of the country or around the world. The Church is open for worship regularly throughout the week and all visitors are welcome.  If you're new to the area, a visitor or even a long term resident and would like to come along, please do - you'll receive a warm welcome.

Please note that the next joint benefice service (held only when it is the 5th Sunday in the month) will be at 10.30am on 29th October 2017 at Hoylandswaine Parish Church, which everyone is welcome to. There will be no service at St John the Baptist Dodworth that day.
