St Giles' Pontefract

Situated in the heart of Pontefract St. Giles' Church provides not only a place of worship but also a space for local groups to meet and for local events to take place. 

St. Giles' is renowned for its warm, friendly family atmosphere and strong community spirit.

St Giles 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.
