St Hugh’s Church


St Hugh’s Church
Coach Road, Baildon, BD17 5HS

St Hugh’s is our Church and Community Centre which serves the lower Baildon community. St Hugh himself was also renowned for standing up for the rights of the oppressed and so it is fitting that we also run a Community Centre here, offering church services, social groups, food bank, community involvement and children’s services.

St Hugh’s main church service of the week is on Sundays at 9.00am. This is a Holy Communion service with prayers, readings from the Old and New Testament, a Gospel reading, hymns, a sermon and the giving and receiving of Communion (bread and wine) or a blessing. Everybody is welcome.

On the fifth Sunday of the month the whole parish worship together at St John’s, St James’ or St Hugh’s at 10.00am on a rotational basis. Please see the diary section of our weekly pew sheets for venues and dates.

Weekday Service – We hold a Holy Communion service on Tuesdays at 9.30am. Everyone is welcome.
