Church of England Diocese of Leeds St. James, Hebden Bridge

About Us

We meet in this Victorian church building which has connections with the Brontes and the Listers of Shibden Hall through it’s first Vicar, The Rev’d Sutcliffe  Sowden.  A Grade 2 listed building, the church building has a fine set of windows and a wall pairing of the annunciation. It also has a splendid Italianate reredos ( not visible in Lent). 

We are part of Churches Together In Hebden, and enjoy fellowship with the other churches in Hebden Bridge. 

The local community is important to us and we have strong relationships with Mytholmroyd Meadows, Hebden Royd Primary School, and various organisations in Hebden Bridge. 

This is a diverse community and we offer a very warm welcome to all.  This beautiful and historic parish includes the town, villages and farmsteads around Hebden Bridge.
