About Us

A friendly welcome awaits you in this magnificent Grade One Listed building where we worship in the Catholic Tradition of the Church of England. Young children are welcome visitors to our "Young Wilfs" Sunday School.

St Wilfrid's is designated as a "Major Parish Church" and is the 38th largest parish church in England (out of the 16000 churches in parishes in the country).

The Parish Office (at the rear of the Church) is usually open Monday to Friday, 9.30am - 12.30pm and deals with all enquiries about Baptisms, Weddings, Banns, and any other questions you might have, as well as taking bookings for the use of our Facilities.
