Leven Churches

Holy Trinity Church
South Street, HU17 5LR
was built on a site given by Sir Richard Bethel in 1843, some 1 1/4 miles away from the site of St Faith's Church.

Built of Yorkshire Gritstone with Westmoreland roofing slate, the church was built between 1843 & 1845 when it was consecrated, though the graveyard was not consecrated until later.

The church is a Grade II listed building and is host not only to the 13th century limestone baptismal font from St Faith's nave, but also the 'Wayside Cross Head', which is believed to be the original head of the White Cross, the base and shaft of which stands on the outskirts of the village.

Sunday Services are listed in the diary pages.

Methodist Church
East Street, HU17 5NG
There were originally two Methodist Chapels in the village, the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel built in 1816, enlarged in 1866 and renovated in 1889, was situated on East Street, though at some point this building was converted into, and still remains a private house. The other, a primitive Methodist Chapel was situated on West Street, but no evidence of this remains.

Both Chapels can be seen marked on the 1851 map of the village - marked as PMC and WMC.

Services are held every Sunday at 6.00pm, and they hold regular Coffee Mornings on the 1st Wednesday of each month and Craft mornings with a Soup & Sweet lunch on every 3rd Wednesday of the month.
