WELCOME to The Minster Church of St. John the Baptist Halifax, one of the Greater Churches of England and one of the jewels to be found in Halifax, here in the heart of Calderdale.

These ancient stones have stood for over 900 years bearing witness to the story of the people of West Yorkshire and as a testimony to their Christian faith.

The Minster is steeped in history, and today remains a place of worship and prayer, a place of hospitality and learning and a centre for mission and pastoral care.

Halifax Minster is an important gathering space for people of all faiths and none; we offer a warm welcome to everyone and hopefully an experience of God’s presence in our world.
