Church of England Diocese of Leeds Slaithwaite with East Scammonden

About Us


The Parish Church of St James, Slaithwaite is situated in the centre of the village and is a very friendly church open to all. 

We welcome visitors with open arms and offer a very easy to follow family service every Sunday which is appropriate for all ages.

We hold regular events in the church and are at the hub of our local community.  We are child friendly and have a creche area within the main church to help keep little ones occupied. 

We have a new vicar! Rev Graeme Holdsworth 07488296108
