FREE TO EXPLORE

There is always something new to discover year on year.

Come and visit this extraordinary Grade 1 listed Gothic church commissioned by the local industrialist Edward Akroyd 160 years ago. It was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and considered to be his finest church with exceptional stained glass.
Scott also designed the model village Akroydon for Edward Akroyd’s mill workers and the old manor house was later donated to become Bankfield Museum.
As part of the anniversary celebrations of The Churches Conservation Trust and the building itself the dedicated volunteer team are working to bring this generally unused building back into the community, to be an exceptional venue for events and exploring the history of the area.

‘TIME & PLACE’ solo art exhibition by Jane Austin

Local watercolour artist Jane Austin is holding a third solo exhibition of paintings, this year reflecting the rich heritage of the church, the Akroydon model village and Halifax itself, rooted firmly in the Industrial Revolution. The drawings from several workshops during the year will inspire to take a closer look. Meet the artist and see how she develops her work, recently seen as a winning artist on the BBC 1 series ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’.

Once a thriving church it fell into disrepair and was no longer used for regular worship by 1989. However many people still have fond memories of family celebrations and connections with the church which are being gathered into a community project of stories and images, ‘People of All Souls’.

Guided Walks
A knowledgeable guided walk of the area, with Jackie Butterfield, will leave the church on Sunday 15th Sept at 11 am and Sunday 22nd Sept at 11am taking approximately an hour, inviting a donation of £3.00, bookable through the Halifax Visitor Information Centre, 01422 368725.
