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

We are part of the Diocese of Leeds, 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 till 26th May 2019 and then times will change.  Please check news letter Village Voice for up to date details. Anglican Holy Communion will continue to be on the 4th Sunday but from June onwards will be at 9.30am.  These changes are due to the appointment of our new priest in charge Rev Greaves on Wednesday 15th May who also has responsibilities in our  neighbouring parish in St James’ Chapelthorpe.  View their website here.

Priest in charge:   Reverend Kevin Greaves

Prayer for our parish

God of mission
Who alone brings growth to your Church,
Send your Holy Spirit to give
Vision to our planning,
Wisdom to our actions,
And power to our witness.
Help our church to grow in numbers,
In spiritual commitment to you,
And in service to our local community,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord
Amen.
