Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Church, Woolley

 

We are part of the Diocese of West Yorkshire and The Dales, and the Church of England.

St Peter’s is a medieval church with some good late medieval stained glass. We are the only church serving the village of Woolley, just off the M1 motorway at junction 38 and 7 miles south of Wakefield. Click here to view map.

If you are thinking about having your wedding at St Peter’s, we offer Marriage Preparation to help you make it the best of beginnings.

Our sister church is in the neighbouring village of West Bretton, home of the world-renowned Yorkshire Sculpture Park. The Church in West Bretton is an Anglican-Methodist Local Ecumenical Partnership. Sunday services there are at 10.30am each week. Anglican Holy Communion is on the 4th Sunday, and usually we have Holy Communion there on Tuesdays at 10.30am.

Priest in charge:
Revd Canon Stephen Kelly

Please support Christians in Iraq

You can download a poster to display in solidarity with the Christians of Iraq.  nazarene_poster
The poster uses the Arabic letter, “N”, which has been daubed on the homes of Christians (often called ‘Nasrani’ in Arabic) in Mosul to identify them as targets for persecution or execution. This symbol has been picked up around the world as a way in which we can identify with those from all religious and ethnic communities who are being targeted by ISIS.
