Church of England Diocese of Leeds Wortley and Farnley

About Us

St James' and St Michael's church is situated on Whitehall Road in New Farnley.

We are small, but faithful, congregation who wamrly welcome new people and visitors. For more details about our church and what happens here, feel free to explore our website. For more up-to-date news you can like our Facebook page.

There has been a church on this site since 1863 when four of the Armitage family of Farnley Hall, who had founded the Farnley Iron Co. in 1844 and built the houses that became the community of New Farnley, erected a corrugated iron church. This was known locally as 'the tin church'.

The present church was built in 1959 to replace the previous church which was in need of major repairs. Today it is a multi-purpose building used for weekly church services, various social and community events and used by other local groups.

If you would like to hire our building for groups, course, parties or other community events please ring the Hall Manager, Nikki Hawcroft, on ‭07904 369520‬
