• Welcome to the website for St John the Divine

    Whether you are new to the village, new to the church or just curious about us, we offer a warm welcome to our services. We hope you'll take a look around our website, get a taste of what we are about as a church and feel comfortable enough to pay us a visit in person. We seek to nurture Christian faith, sharing the love of God locally and globally.

    St John's is the Parish Church for Menston and Burley Woodhead and is part of the Diocese of Leeds. It has been a place of worship since 1871. The church is usually open between 10am and 4pm Monday to Saturday for quiet prayer and reflection. The news sheet gives details of services and activities for the coming week.



    We are making good progress in finding a new vicar to lead us. The position has ben advertised in the Church Times and we have prepared a brochure telling potential applicants what the parish has to offer. We hope and pray that we will have some suitable applicants so we can hold interviews in mid-May. Further details are on the Diocesan website
