About us

The Benefice of Cleckheaton is made up of three Anglican churches:

St. John's 

St. Luke's 

Whitechapel

The Benefice serves the town of Cleckheaton and neighbouring areas and is part of the Birstall Deanery in the Diocese of Leeds (also known as The Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales).

We aim to be welcoming and inclusive congregations committed to serving ALL of God's people regardless of age, gender, race, sexuality or disability and hope to learn from the varied experiences of Christians who, in the words of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, are part of the "rainbow people of God."

Please consider joining us and sharing your gifts and skills with us.
