Church of England Diocese of Manchester Kirklees Valley

St James, Woolfold

St James Church is a friendly, welcoming little Church, serving its local area since 1930, with a warm fellowship and a heart for its area.  We want to serve our community as best we can, sharing the love of Jesus in practical ways, in welcome and fellowship, and in worship.

With the ongoing Coronavirus situation, we are worshipping weekly online and you can find the service here on this site every week, along with ways to access access practical support and also other resources for worship and prayer at home. We want to support and encourage you in any way we can at this difficult time - please get in touch if you would like to speak to us or if you have any questions.  Before the latest lockdown we re-opened our church for public worship on Sundays at 11am - and a full risk assessment is available here on this site and updated regularly.  We are offering onsite services, with appropriate health and hygiene precautions, alongside our ongoing online provision for the next few months.  To attend in person, please book in - as we have a limit of 9 places per service.

Above all, please stay safe - you and all those affected are very much in our prayers!

The Parish of Kirklees Valley is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Manchester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
