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.
Come off the M62 at junction 25. Follow the signs towards Mirfield. Take the first exit at the roundabout and towards Leeds. Continue up this road until you see a ‘Starbucks’ on your right hand side. Take the filter lane and turn right at the lights - this is Stocks Bank Road. Drive over the brow of the hill and begin to drop down the other side. You will see a playground on your left hand side. The entrance to The Mirfield Centre is about 100 yards further down the road, on the right hand side.
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.
