Welcome to

St. John the Evangelist in Upper Hopton, WF14 8EL

In the Mirfield Team Parish



For the love of God we strive for:

quality in worship and the service of others;

stewardship of the resources that are entrusted to us;

partnership, and harmonious relationships among ourselves and with the wider community.

Where we fail we ask forgiveness, dust ourselves down and strive anew.

May God Bless you.


Rev'd Canon Hugh Baker

(Vicar of Mirfield Team Parish)


God help us to live slowly:

To move simply:

To look softly:

To allow emptiness:

To let the heart create for us.


Michael Leunig

St John’s Church A brief History.

In 1840, Upper Hopton was made an Ecclesiastical District, with a curate, George Kerr, in charge.
In 1843, James Micklethwaite, a Maltster who lived at Hopton Hall, donated a plot of land to the Church Commissioners in recognition of Rev. Kerr’s work over the previous 3 years. Designed by the Durham architects Bonomi and Cory, the church is a copy of the 15th century Perpendicular style. The final bill was almost £1,200. The foundation stone was laid on St John the Evangelist’s Day – December 27th – 1844 by James Micklethwaite and the building was consecrated on October 21st 1846. Full Story Here
