History

There's evidence that Christianity Came to Penistone well over a thousand years ago.

St. John's Church has the remains of a Saxon cross and was no doubt built in wood before being rebuilt in stone during medieval times and becoming the chief centre for Christian worship,, education and society in Penistone.

Each of the churches in the Parish has its own unique history - we hope you find these pages useful and informative.
