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 don’t need an appointment and a member of the clergy will be there to advise and help you book your special occasion. You can also arrange the reading of your banns at this session if you live in the parish and are getting married elsewhere.

St John’s is situated in the heart of Baildon centre. We welcome you to join us at any of our church services, social groups and regular fund raising events. ‘more
