Allerton Congregational Church History up to 1868.


From early times there had been many godly persons in this village, accustomed to worship first at Kipping Chapel, afterwards at Horton Lane, Bradford. A separate sanctuary was, however, imperatively required. It was erected 1814. The pastors have been-
  • 1815. Rev. JOSEPH HARRISON (from Bury). He had often preached at Allerton whilst the congregation was being formed, and had promoted the erection of the new chapel. Ob. Feb. 8, 1821.
  • 1821. Rev. JONAS HINCHCLIFFE (Northowram Acy., from Booth and Haslingden). Resigned 1823, and became minister of the General Baptists, Bradford. Ob. 1833.
  • 1827. Rev. THOMAS HUTTON (Airedale Coll., from Pocklington). Greatly respected. Relinquished the pastoral office in 1857, and still survives.
  • 1858. Rev. JOSEPH MASON CALVERT (Airedale Coll.), from Dronfield. Resigned 1867, and is now settled at Stainland.
  • The pulpit is vacant.
