About Us

St. John the Evangelist is the Parish Church of Lepton. It is to be found on Greenbalk Lane which is near the top of Rowley Lane's junction with the Wakefield Road (A642). The church is evangelical in tradition yet is eager to learn from all other Christian traditions. On 1st November 2018, we joined with St Michael's Emley and St. James the Great Flockton to become the United Benefice of Lepton, Emley, and Flockton with Denby Grange.

The church attempts to give pastoral care to the congregation and to the village of Lepton. Our Priest in  Charge is the Reverend Val Keating who can be contacted by telephone on 01484 606126 or email [email protected]
