St. Bartholomew’s church is a beautiful venue  to book for a christening. The church has ample capacity to accommodate all your family and friends. The attractive grounds are situated within lush green countryside and within the pretty village of Ripponden.

Close by is one of the oldest public houses in the region, and there are plenty of venues for your christening party, including local restaurants serving wide-ranging worldwide cuisines.

Christenings are held at St Bartholomew’s in the service on the third Sunday of the month.
