St James the Great, Flockton

A very friendly and welcoming parish church, St. James' stands at the heart of the village of Flockton on the A637 Barnsley Road, half way between Huddersfield and Wakefield in West Yorkshire.

Despite the many and changes that have occurred over the years, Flockton Church continues to seek to be outward reaching in its mission and service.

We are committed to praying for the community of Flockton and the wider world. We hope that everyone in the village, as well as visitors, will find themselves at home and part of the community in their church.

Why not come and join us on a Sunday? Everyone is very welcome and we would welcome the opportunity to get to know our community further.

See our website for details of services.


The parish of Flockton with Denby Grange 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 Leeds’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. Please see our website for contact details.
