The church itself is over 800 years old and it is not always easy to keep on top of the maintenance and building developments that such an enormous building requires. We do, however, endeavour to carry on with services, events and activities regardless of the conditions.

We have several organisations within the church that work very hard to keep the church looking the way it should and this website shows them in action.  Worship and outreach is something we are working hard on, to make sure that the word of God remains relevant to the communities that we serve. We strive to be a very friendly church! A great pastoral team look after sections of our community, and through our Meeting Place groups there is great fellowship both with church service attenders and also those who do not attend church but are curious about Christianity or wish a closer relationship with Christ.


 On the 14th and 15th of September 2018, we are holding a Heritage Weekend, where people can explore this major Parish  Church. Many activities have been planned for both days, with  tours up the Bell Tower, graveyard trails and quizzes about All Hallows' Church. We even have an organ recital taking place between 1pm and 3pm on Friday.

Each day will contain a lecture/talk about different parts of All Hallows' heritage; with Friday's being held at 7pm, and about 'The Medieval Parish and its Church: Kirkburton in context?' by Dr Pat Cullum from the University of Huddersfield. The Saturday talk will be held at 1pm, where Tim Viney from Atlantic Geomatics will be giving a presentation about their project to digitally map the graveyards of both All Hallows' and Emmanuel Church.

The times for both Friday 14th and Saturday 15th are while 11am to 4pm

As for the Bell Tower Tours, here are the times                                                                                                                                       Friday - 10:30, 11:30, 12:30, 2,30 and 3:30                                                                                                                                       Saturday 10:00, 11:00 and 12:00

The tours will be in groups of 10, and you'll be able to book a place on the day 

For more information about this event, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, where daily posts talk about all things heritage  

We hope that we see you on Heritage Weekend. 


All Hallows Church has recently gained the status of "A Significant Church in England", which is a wonderful achievement. This means that Major Parish Churches represent some of the most significant and well-loved places of worship in England. The Church Buildings Council (CBC) has identified 300 such churches across the country, which offer different aspects of being a church. All Hallows is a significant historical building as well as a place of worship.

These are exceptionally significant parish church buildings with a different scale of opportunities and challenges compared to the vast majority of the 12,267 listed Church of England church buildings.
