St Cyprian and St James, Bellbrooke Avenue (Harehills) (3 comments)
Black & White imageUndated. View of the church of St Cyprian and St James, located in Bellbrooke Avenue at the junction with Coldcotes Avenue. This brick church replaced a temporary wooden structure dating from 1903. The closure of St James's Church in Cross York Street in 1949 meant that a new parish was created, that of St Cyprian and St James. This new Church was built in 1959. The Abbot and Smith organ, the pulpit, communion table, lectern and the Bishop's chair , now housed in the modern church, originally belonged to the church of St James. Linked to St Cyprian and St James is a recently built chuch hall (2007).

St. Cyprian and St. James, noticeboard (Harehills) (1 comment)
Black & White imageUndated. Image shows the noticeboard for the church of St. Cyprian and St. James, announcing the programme of services. At this time the vicar was the Reverend D. vasey and St. Cyprian's vicarage was in Foundry Approach. St. Cyprian's church dates fom 1903 when it was just a wooden structure built on brick foundations. When St. James's church closed down in Cross York Street in 1949 the two congregations joined together and a new parish was formed, that of St. Cyprian's and St. James. A new church, built in buff-coloured brick opened in 1959. Some treasured items from St. James's church were installed in the new church, including the Abbot & Smith organ, the pulpit, communion table, lectern and the Bishop's chair. St. Cyprian's and St. James's church is located at the junction of Bellbrooke Avenue and Coldcotes Avenue.
