We are an active church with many weekday activities as well as Sunday worship. In addition to the church itself, the three-storey ancillary premises (known as the Southgate Christian Centre) consist of two large halls (one with stage facilities); a coffee lounge; a number of meeting rooms; and an approved kitchen which serves regular shoppers' lunches. The premises are fully accessible for the disabled. A Drama and Social Group produces a play and a musical on the stage every year and occasional social and fund-raising activities are also organised. Further details are on our website.


Main service in the church, which commences at 10.30. There are regular Communion services.

A warm welcome awaits everyone!

Potted history

The original church on the site was built in the late 19th Century and now forms part of our ancillary buildings (Southgate Christian Centre) which were extensively refurbished recently, being fully equipped for disabled access. The present church was built in 1915 as St. Paul's. In 1973 it combined with two others in the area to become Elland Southgate.

In the summer of 2015, we celebrated the centenary of the present church building with special services and a major exhibition illustrating the life of the church family over the previous 100 years. A special brochure was produced, together with limited edition china mugs. Further details are on our website.
