Welcome to the Parish of Baildon

Welcome to the Church of England in Baildon. We have three churches, St John’s Parish Church, St James’ Church and St Hugh’s. Our Churches are a witness to God’s love in this community as we meet together for prayer and worship every Sunday and serve this community in all sorts of ways. You will find a warm welcome at any of our churches and we are always here for you.

Christenings and Weddings

If you would like to arrange a Christening or Wedding, come along to our weekly Vestry Hour on Tuesdays from 6.00pm to 7.00pm at St John’s Church Hall on Hallcliffe, Baildon.

You can also arrange the reading of your banns at this session if you live in the parish and are getting married elsewhere.
