The Benefice of Pontefract

The Parish of St Giles’ with St Mary’s is part of the Benefice of Pontefract, alongside the Parish of All Saints, Pontefract. We are a united group of Anglican churches, seeking to serve our town together.

The Vicar of Pontefract (a post currently in vacancy) works across the three churches, and there are occasional joint Benefice services and activities. For example, we often join together for our Lent and Advent Courses.

St Giles' Church

St Giles’ Church sits in the heart of Pontefract town centre and holds services at different times throughout the week.

St. Mary's Church

St Mary’s Church meets for worship in the hall of the St Mary’s Community Centre, Chequerfield.

All Saints Church

All Saints is a welcoming and active church, worshipping with a mixture of traditional and modern worship styles. They meet in an amazing building nestled inside the ruins of a much older Church that was ruined during the Civil Wars.
