About Us

St. Andrews is a church dating from the 18th Century in the pennine village of Stainland situated between Halifax and Huddersfield

Following bulding alterations some 6 years ago there is now a large social area at the rear of church with toilets and kitchen facilities

Worship is in a modern catholic style and is family and child friendly. Children are encouraged at services and in particular there is a Sunday School in our social area during part of the Parish Eucharist on a Sunday morning

There is a strong Eucharistic focus with the provision of a said Eucharist on most days.(see service times for details)

There is an active social life in the parish and in particular a very popular "Coffee and Breakfast" event on the last Saturday morning of each month
