We are open for worship

every Sunday morning at 10:30am



All are welcome








We are the church in the market place in the centre of Batley - you can't miss our red doors!!


As a church we offer a warm welcome to anyone whether they are regular worshippers or visitors.

We realise that coming into a church for the first time can be quite daunting, so hopefully this site will help by giving you the details of where to find us and when we are open, and will give you a taste of what you can expect if you come!

If you are ever visiting Batley and the church is open, then please come in and visit us!

There is a lift that can be accessed at the rear of the church if you are uable to use the front steps,

please see the  'Where to Find us' page.





Our mission is to serve ...

God, people, and our wider community

in partnership with others.


In fulfilling this we will:

Call people to faith, worship and Christian Discipleship.

Care for individual people, our own community and the wider world.

Build bridges with people of other communities and faiths.

Maintain partnership with other Christian churches.
