Roomfield is a small Baptist church with a big welcome, only a few minutes walk from the town centre of Todmorden, down Halifax Road. We are a friendly church encompassing a wide age range. If you are looking for a congregation of people who enjoy a diversity of worship and service styles, who look at issues in an open and non-judgmental way, are committed to working in and with the local community and are housed in a multi-purpose, fully adapted modern building, then please do come and visit us.


Whether you are a local resident or a visitor, we would love to see you at any of our services or other activities. Family worship is at 10.45 am every Sunday, and we have discussion groups, a film club and host the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides. Full details of these events and other services and regular activities, together with contact details where necessary, are on the ‘Activities’ page.
