St Hilda’s Church is a small Anglican Church situated on Netheroyd Hill Road in the village of Cowcliffe, Huddersfield. We have been here for over 160 years. We hope to be here for another 160 years or more. For this we need you and your support. We’re glad that you are here. Please take a glance at this site and see how you can become part of a dream – a dream to create a community, which seeks God, which is at ease with itself and which cares for its people and for others.

At St Hilda’s Church we have 3 initiatives which are raising monies for our Building Fund. Whilst we now have redecorated the Nave (see St Hilda’s Church in photographs page), raised sufficient funds to repair the Vestry roof, we now need the back wall of Church repointing!!!!! so we need to continue to raise funds for this repair – sometimes it feels like repainting the Forth Bridge!!
