    The Anglican Parish Church of St Aidan, Skelmanthorpe, HD8 9AF, welcomes you to our worship and social and community events: details of which are on our webpages, and scroll down this page to see some forthcoming events.
     
    Our main worship is at 10.00am except on the first Sunday of any month when it is usually at 10.30am (as Sunday Club precedes this service). If you belong to another Faith (or have no faith) you are welcome to join us as an observer, with no obligation.
     
    We welcome enquiries for Christenings (Baptisms), Weddings and Funerals. Confessions are heard by appointment. Please kindly read the relevant pages on this website, and then feel free to contact Philip, the parish priest, on 07805 509469 or life.draw@btinternet.com  Please kindly note that Philip is often not available to deal with enquires on Mondays.
     
    The Church was built in 1894-1895, designed by the well known Victorian architect G F Bodley. Please see ''Our Church Building'' page for more details.
     
    We have plans to complete our church building, which was never actually finished in 1895! We intend to create a new south entrance, giving proper dignified access to those with disabilities; and also to provide up-to-date loo's, a kitchen and other facilities - building to 21st C standards without damaging the traditional layout and ethos of our parish church. Our Altars remain in their original eastward position: http://www2.kirklees.gov.uk/business/planning/application_search/detail.aspx?id=2015/90359 .
     

    Our Mission Statement.....

    We exist to worship God in holiness and adoration.

    We proclaim that God totally and utterly loves every creature in the universe, no matter whom or what they are, both in this life and in the life to come.

    We intend that this fact should be proclaimed by compassionate action: for, and with, the neighbour in our community; for our neighbour in distant places; and for all the other creatures we share this planet with.

    We want to help and share in the delight, and the struggle, of local folk in their pilgrimage/journey of life - to enable and encourage people to cope and to try and live life to the full.
