SUNDAY COMMUNION SERVICE restarts on Sunday 19th July at 9.15 am – but no other activities are taking part at this time. National Heritage Open Day Saturday 19th September 2020 from 10.30am to 2pm. Come In and look round and listen to our wonderful organ and see the official Birkby Trail (map on display).
St John’s lies at the heart of Birkby, half a mile from Huddersfield town centre.
We belong to the Anglican Communion, within the Diocese of Leeds. The building was designed by William Butterfield and its construction entrusted to Joseph Kaye of Huddersfield: the foundation stone being laid in 1851 by Sir John Ramsden. It was consecrated in 1853 and it is said up to 4,000 people attended the opening.
