Building for the Future Appeal

St Stephen’s Church building will be 200 years old in 2030. To ensure the future of this historic and beautiful building, we need to complete urgent roof work to prevent further damage and keep the building safe. This work is now expected to cost over £90,000. We have been successful in applying for some grant funding, but need to raise more funds within the community as well. With your support, we can continue to offer a positive presence in our community for many years to come.

Your donations towards St Stephen's Building Fund will ensure we can keep offering services to our local community including:

  • Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
  • Space for prayer and worship
  • Concerts
  • Community events
  • Space for community groups

and much more.

As a church school we have very close links with St. Stephen's Church, Lindley.

Ever since the opening of the first Church Day School back in 1831, St. Stephen’s has had a very close involvement with children’s education in Lindley. Lindley CE Infant School was dedicated by the Bishop of Wakefield in 1954 and was then the first of the new Church of England Aided Schools in the Wakefield Diocese.
