The church is one of the more attractive buildings in the village, possibly because it dates from the 19th rather than mid-20th century.

Sadly, thieves have struck here several times
and the church was damaged when the lead flashing was stolen from the roof.
In one such attack, the thieves even stole the door handle!

However, thanks to the generosity of the bidders at the
New Inn Charity Auction on Wednesday 18th April 2012,
£100 was donated to the church to help towards the cost of repairing the roof.
Altogether, the New Inn managed to raise a magnificent £824!
The remainder was split between Wakefield Hospice and Yorkshire Air Ambulance
with both charities receiving £362 each.
