Windhill Congregational Church History up to 1868.


In 1854 a school was established in this locality, and was conducted by teachers from Idle. The chapel was erected and opened in 1856.

The first minister was-

  • 1860. Rev. Professor HARTLEY, M.A., tutor of Airedale College. His ministry was attended with considerable success. Mr. H. left England as a missionary to Madagascar in May, 1863.
  • July, 1864. Rev. EDWARD OLLERENSHAW, from Bradford. Till now no regular church had been formed, though the sacrament had been administered.
  • Mr. O. has just resigned.

* By aid of Rev. J. Parnaby.
