In the Parish of Leesfield the Parish church is St Thomas Leesfield. There are 2 daughter churches St Agnes & St Hugh's.

Sunday School at Knolls Lane began at a cottage at High Knolls, but the need for a permanent base was needed and the foundation stone for a Sunday School and day school was laid down by Miss Agnes Whittaker on May 21st 1869.

By 1880 the need for a church was noted and the completed church was opened and dedicated to St Agnes for public worship by the second Bishop of Manchester on November 27th 1880.
