The Destiny Church

Many Thanks to Amelie Riis for donating images depicting the recreation hall’s conversion to the “Destiny Church” Circa 2005.


The Destiny church.

Destiny Church in Wakefield, West Yorkshire is a large, lively and loving church family. You’ll find vibrant worship, excellent preaching and time for fellowship to get to know one another as well as a great programme for children and youth.

Destiny purchased a large restored Victorian Theatre on Tuke Grove, Parklands (nr Pinderfields Hospital) Wakefield – you must come and see us at 10am on Sunday!

Ian Critchley and his wife Rachel lead this growing church. New people come every week – it’s exciting to see so many people coming, young, older and from many nations and from all walks of life. Destiny is flourishing!

Please take a few moments to have a look around our website and we hope to see you at Destiny Church soon.


Sunday Services are held in our building at Tuke Grove, Parklands (nr Pinderfields Hospital) at 10am. This enormous restored building was previously a Theatre and houses one of only two existing Victorian stages in the UK. As you arrive, look out for the yellow jackets of our parking attendants who will be able to help you find a good parking space. The Sunday Service starts at 10am and usually lasts for about one and a half hours, during which we have great worship, perhaps some testimonies about God’s goodness and relevant, positive preaching of the Word of God to build strong, mature Christians. During the service the children have their own specialised groups – and afterwards we enjoy fellowship and a cup of tea or coffee.
