We're situated on the main road through Boothtown. Wherever you're reading all about us, we look forward to you coming to visit us. We would love to welcome you into our church family.


Boothtown United Methodist Church (as it was then known), owes its origin to the Reform movement of 1849/50. In 1851 a room was rented at the bottom of Ploughcroft Lane from Isaac Hartley. Prior to its adaptation, it was a Smithy and stable.

Our first church building was on the junction of Bradford New Road and Grantham Road, and was opened on Good Friday 1862 and was in use until 1907, when the new larger church was built on the current site, and opened on Saturday, 23rd March 1907.

Over the years we have been joined by other congregations as churches have closed and now have a congregation drawn from anywhere between Clifton and Queensbury!


We have our main multi-purpose church area for worship, baptisms, weddings and funerals, as well as the church hall which hosts a variety of weekly activities as listed below. We have various fundraising events taking place throughout the year, including our annual Easter and Christmas Fayres. If you're interested in booking a stall at any of our events, the cost is £10 – please email

To hire a room, the current cost is £15 per hour – please email or contact our Senior Steward (see Who's Who).
