Our United Benefice

Welcome to the United Benefice of Todmorden with Cornholme and Walsden. The Church of England in the three valleys of the market town of Todmorden.

The United benefice is relatively new and consists of the parishes of St. Mary Todmorden, St. Michael and All Angels Cornholme and St. Peter Walsden.

Our Priest in Charge is Reverend John Jukes (MA). John joined the benefice in September 2019. Our benefice is also supported by retired priests, lay ministry and volunteers.
For Christians in our congregation, offering praise to God is a daily calling. We are called to worship not only with our lips but in our lives.

Our benefice celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate in any way. We rejoice to welcome everyone  in our town , especially when they  would like to attend our services, events or activities. Each church has a different style and approach to praise Gods glory. Each of our congregations are lively, spirited and kind hearted and you can be sure to find a friendly welcome, fellowship and great tea, coffee and biscuits.

We are very proud of our relationships with local schools, businesses and community groups. Many of which use our church facilities to hold weekly, monthly and annual events. Our bright open spaces, kitchens and meeting rooms are available for hire.

We welcome people for baptism and wedding ceremonies. Please contact us where we can arrange a special session for you to meet with some of the ministry team and book your special day.
We are also able to support you through difficult times such as funerals.
