We are part of the Deanery of Kirkburton, in the Huddersfield Episcopal Area (The Rt Revd Dr Jonathan Gibbs, Bishop of Huddersfield), in the Anglican Diocese of Leeds (The Rt Revd Nick Baines, Bishop of Leeds).
We are only a small middle-of-the-road village Church. There's nothing grand or special about us, but we would love to see you if you would like to visit us. We usually meet at 10.00am; but on the first Sunday of the month we have a 9.30am Traditional Holy Communion service (based upon the 1662 Book of Common Prayer) followed at 11.00am by Contemporary informal worship. You might wish to know that the altar-bread used in our Church is gluten-free
The Parish of St Aidan is pleased to have links with Skelmanthorpe Methodist Church on Pilling Lane, thus we are part of CTiSk (Churches Together in Skelmanthorpe)
Those who live local are welcome to support St Aidan's Church cause as being promoted by Skelmanthorpe Co-op this year, see the following link Co-op membership

Our Mission Statement.....
We exist to worship God in holiness and adoration.
We proclaim that God totally and utterly loves every creature in the universe, no matter whom or what they are, both in this life and in the life to come.
We intend that this fact should be proclaimed by compassionate action: for, and with, the neighbour in our community; for our neighbour in distant places; and for all the other creatures we share this planet with.
We want to help and share in the delight, and the struggle, of local folk in their pilgrimage/journey of life - to enable and encourage people to cope and to try and live life to the full.
