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 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.
