Looking across the valley from Upper Hopton towards Battyeford your eyes can't help but be drawn to the magnificent church on the other
side of the valley. The Community Church of the Resurrection with it verdigris lustered green copper roof and twin "pepper pot towers" forms a familiar landmark; but in recent years few local people
will have visited it or know anything about the Community of the Resurrection, in whose 22 acre grounds it stands.
However, throughout the worldwide Anglican Church, Mirfield and the Community and
College of the Resurrection would be very familiar.
Since 1902 the Community College of the Resurrection has trained ordinands to the Anglican faith from all over the world.
