St. Bartholomew’s church is a beautiful venue  to book for your special day.   The church has ample capacity to accommodate all your family and friends. The attractive grounds are situated within lush green countryside and within the pretty village of Ripponden.

Close by is one of the oldest public houses in the region, and there are plenty of venues for your reception or christening party, including local restaurants serving wide-ranging worldwide cuisines.

For guests who need somewhere to stay over there are several  small establishments in Ripponden, and a larger selection of hotels just a few miles away in the nearest  town of Halifax.

Wedding couples are invited to share in the ‘Loving for Life’, marriage preparation evenings, which provide time and opportunity for them to discuss their future lives together in a warm and friendly environment.

The Mothers’ Union send a card to the couple on their wedding day.
