Airevale United Reformed Churches -

Brotherton - Castleford - Knottingley


The Congregation of the Church In Knottingley started in 1804 as a Congregational Chapel through the work of the Rev’d Boothroyd of Pontefract’s Independent Church in Finkle Street. The congregation originally met in Gagg’s Yard between Aire Street and The Croft.

In the mid - 19th Century, a visionary Minister, Rev’d John Dennison, saw the current Building in The Croft erected at a cost of less than £1000, including the purchase of the land. It opened in 1849.

A full history of the Chuch in Knottingley, written by Anne Broughton, is published on the town’s website here.

Memories of the Church by Dorothy Posnett are also on the same website here.
