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

Following the development of new housing at Holts Estate, using the Henshaw Trust which was responsible for the church schools of Oldham Borough, a Church of England Aided School was built. This also acted as a worship centre through a sanctuary built on to the hall.

On December 8th 1956 the Lord Bishop of Manchester opened the school and dedicated the sanctuary to St Hugh.

In 1965 Leesfield got a curate whose main priority and responsibility was to create a daughter church with a council and life of its own and weekly communion.

When the school was reduced in size in 2002 many alterations were made to the Church and it was moved to its current place in the School Hall.
