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

We are part of the Diocese of Leeds, and the Church of England.

Priest in charge:   Reverend Kevin Greaves

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 would like to make contact, please email our vicar kevin.greaves@leeds.anglican.org or via info@woolleychurch.org.uk or phone 01924 256031.

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.
