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’s 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.
View our regular services pattern here or view our Calendar below.
We hope the Covid measures we have in place encourage you to visit us with confidence. If you have any concerns at all, please let us know. We live-stream our Sunday Service on our Facebook page every week. The weekly service booklet is available on our website so you can follow the service at home – click on ‘Service Sheet and News’ on the tab below.
