About Us


Welcome to the Church of England United Benefice of St. John the Evangelist, Birkby and Christ Church, Woodhouse, Huddersfield. 

You can find us just at the top of Woodhouse Hill.  

Leaving Huddersfield, turn right off the Bradford Road at Fartown traffic lights and head towards Woodhouse/Sheepridge. 

Alternatively, turn right off the Bradford Road below Asda (between the Wood Yard and Ashbrow  Garage) and continue along Ashbrow Road.  Turn right at the mini-roundabout and the church is at the end of the road.

We are a small, friendly community that struggle to maintain a beautiful listed Church in need of much tender love and care. We do this primarily as a worshiping community whose life is centered around the Parish Eucharist on Sunday morning. We try to follow a way of life based on the example and teaching of Jesus, bearing witness within the community by our involvement, life and worship. We extend a warm welcome to everyone.
