Who We Are


Kings Church is a thriving, growing, multi-cultural Church based in Halifax, West Yorkshire. It is made up of people of all ages from all walks of life who share a common identity – a passion for Christ and His Kingdom.

Why not take some time to look over our website and see what is happening? Better still why not come and taste for yourself the goodness of God? We would love to have you come and be our special guest.

What to expect

Our service starts at 10:30am with praise and worship followed by the word of God.  We have a friendly welcome team to welcome you as you arrive, as we want you to feel welcomed at Kings, especially if you are a guest.

The whole community at Kings worship together. Following worship children and youth learn about God at their level. On the last Sunday of every month we have communion and we have full-immersion baptisms on a regular basis.

Once the service has finished at around 12:30pm you are invited to stay for refreshments at the Kings Coffee House.
