St Michael and St Helen's

St Michael and St HelensThe foundation stone of St Michael and St Helen’s Church, a multi-purpose building, was laid in 1953 and the church dedicated in 1955 to serve an estate already built on Fernside and a development planned on Mountfield. It replaced two other daughter churches of All Hallows’ on Somerset Road and at Fenay Bridge.

Recent major refurbishment saw the installation of a good working kitchen and easy access toilets. A ramped approach was made to the main door. An inspiring feature of the interior is a magnificent and vibrant stained-glass window.

This church provides a focus for the post war housing which surrounds the church. It plays host to many non- church activities. These often become a vehicle for bringing people to God.
