Hostel of the Resurrection, Chapel (Woodhouse)
Black & White imageUndated, The community of the resurrection was founded in Oxford by Charles Gore, who became Bishop of Oxford and others. This was in 1892, the community moved to Mirfield in 1898, occupying a former mill owners house, this is now known as the House of the Resurrection. It was decided to found an Anglican college to train men for the role of Parish Priest in the Church of England, who would be unable to pay for their own education. A university degree was required for ordination. This chapel was in a hostel for students provided so that they were able to fulfill the residency requirements.

Hostel of the Resurrection, Chapel (Woodhouse)
Black & White imageUndated, This was the Chapel Head of the Resurrection. In 1902 the College of the Resurrection was founded by the Community of the Resurrection who were based in Mirfield. They needed a residence in the vicinity of Leeds University for students taking a BA degree. This would be followed by a two year Theology course in Mirfield to prepare for Anglican Ministry. Two large semi detached houses were acquired in Springfield Mount to house students. By 1910 these had been replaced by a purpose built hostel.
