WELCOME to The Minster Church of St. John the Baptist Halifax
The ancient stones of Halifax Minster have born witness to the Christian faith in West Yorkshire for some 900 years through times of great celebration and sorrow.
It’s a natural gathering space for both visitors to the town and Borough, and a place which reaches out to the people of Aachen in Germany, and Kowack Cathedral in Tanzania.
It is rich in heritage, and offers daily worship alongside a huge cultural and educational events program. It is the spiritual home to the Duke of Wellington Regiment, now subsumed into the Yorkshire Regiment.
If you’re in the area please come and visit us, and if you are looking for a community to join, volunteering opportunities, and somewhere to worship, then come and check us out!
