A FEW WORDS ABOUT ST HILDA’S CHURCH IN COWCLIFFE, HUDDERSFIELD
Our local newspaper The Huddersfield Examiner once described St Hilda’s as the “Church with a View”. The building – erected in 1850 – is neatly tucked in to Cowcliffe on the bend in Netheroyd Hill Road. From the Church Door you can see right across the town- and even out to Emley Moor mast. From the exterior the church has more of a school appearance because it was originally to serve to educate the ‘poor of Cowcliffe’ as well as providing a place of worship in the village!
The building has served the local community now for 163 years which is proud to call St Hilda’s “their church”. Should you wish to support the Church via easyfundraising, please choose St Hilda’s Church, Cowcliffe as your cause
Our Sunday service is in the early evening at 5.00pm (except the 1st Sunday in the month when it is at 10.30am) As well as services of Holy Communion, we will be able to offer “Songs of Praise” services and other more informal acts of worship.
We run a Luncheon Club for the seniors of our village who live alone. Food is cooked on the premises and diners have a 2 course meal and a cuppa as well as time to enjoy good company and fellowship.
The church and its facilities are available for hire for a one off activity or for something on a regular basis. St Hilda’s building is a multipurpose building, which lends itself to functions, meetings and regular activities. Our entrance area has a spacious entrance hall, accessible toilets and baby changing facilities. The main church area has a capacity of about 100. In addition there is a room with a capacity of about 30 and a fitted kitchen.

Our aim is to try to live out a ‘Christ Like’ life in care and service in our local community – but also being mindful of the needs of people in other countries. We hope we are keeping the Christian presence in our community alive and enjoy welcoming new members who want to join our journey of discovery.
