The Mirfield Centre is part of the Christian educational work of the Community of the Resurrection (CR), which is a religious order of the Anglican Communion.
The Centre was first established in 1997 as a resource for the mission of the Church. It had the 'aim of offering encouragement, education for discipleship and formation for men and women from all the churches in order to be the People of God in this new millennium'. The life, worship and resources of the Community of the Resurrection were seen to be one of the foundations on which this could be built.
The Mirfield Centre currently offers day events, quiet days, short educational courses and residential courses in partnership with the Community Retreat House. The Centre's programmes focus on the themes of prayer, education, pastoral support and encounter. The Centre can also provide day conference facilities for groups.
The easiest way to get to the Centre is to come off the M62 at junction 25. Follow the signs towards Mirfield. You'll invariably come to a queue of traffic at Cooper Bridge Roundabout. Fork left and follow the signs towards Leeds. Take the first right after the Little Chef (Stocks Bank Road - Signed to Battyeford and CR House). We're about a mile down this road on your right.
Please note – the entrance to the Centre is marked by a brown ladder sign (to the right as you go down the hill, see picture). Please do not use the Community Retreat House entrance.
