New Parish Name

As from 1st May 2009 All Saints’ Elton and St James’ Woolfold will remain the names by which our two parish churches are known, but they now come under a single parish, the newly named Parish of Kirklees Valley.

New Church Appeal

Seven years of fund raising for the new church building eventually realised in excess of £940,000 and allowed building work to commence in July 2007. Over 90% came directly from parishoners, showing a high level of commitment to developing a new worship centre.

We also enjoyed excellent support from many other benefactors (see below).

The Way We Were

 By Alice Latimer

A lifelong resident of Elton and member of its parish church is using her rich memories of the past to build for the future.

Alice Latimer has written a book, entitled "The Way We Were", in which she recalls her own younger days and the people and events of old Elton in order to raise funds for the new All Saints Church and Parish Centre.

First published in 2001, she has since sold hundreds of copies, raising over £2,200. Full story, together with some fascinating extracts, can be seen here:
