About Us

The Church of St Michael & All Angels, Smawthorne, Castleford is one of the churches which constitute the Castleford Team Parish. Details of services can be found on our Website.

There has been a Christian witness and presence in Castleford for well over a thousand years. It is believed that St Augustine and his Monks had introduced the Christian faith here by 597 A.D. Nowadays the life and worship of Castleford Team Parish is centred on the four Churches which constitute the team.

The parish has a Team Rector and a Team Vicar and there is a very strong commitment to the life of the Gospel from the parishioners. Our Team Vicar is Polish and English is not his first language.

The churches of Castleford, although standing as a memorial to our rich Christian heritage, now more importantly recognise their need to stand as a vibrant witness to the saving power of Jesus Christ for all people today.

Our services are centred on the Mass and vestments are used.
