Peek into the past with All Hallows' Church

All Hallows' is a beautiful church, which has been a place of prayer for the Almondbury community in times of joy and sadness for around 900 years. A guide book is available in church giving more information about its history.

The 1914-1918 War Memorial is on the north pillar of the chancel arch, under the Reims Crucifix, which was rescued from the burnt out ruins of Reims Cathedral by one of the Almondbury clergy who was serving as an Army Chaplain. In 1918 the Archbishop of Reims gave permission for the crucifix to be kept in Almondbury as part of the War Memorial.

 

 

 

St Cuthbert with his otter!

 



The first contact most people have with the church is at their baptism (christening), when they are welcomed into the family of God. This takes place at the font, which marks the beginning of their Christian journey. This is why fonts are traditionally placed near the main entrance to a church. Our ten foot high font cover is Tudor (circa 1500) and was restored when the font was moved to its present position at the west end of the church in 1874, and then more recently in 1936. 
 

 

The northern saints!
