A BIRKBY church has reached the end of the road after more than 100 years of worship.
Members of the congregation will be attending the last service at Birkby Baptist Church this Sunday.
The church - built in 1905 - has been sold after a gradual drop in congregation numbers over the years.
Church members will now join with New North Road Baptist Church in Westgate, Huddersfield.
Gerald Matthews, deacon at Birkby Baptist Church, said: "It has been a long, hard decision which has been going on for about five years.
"We have been in deficit and have had to eat into our reserves.
"We could not go on like that.
"The building needs a lot of work to bring it up to standard for wheelchair users.
"We hope the new group will have a better chance in this area."
The Grade II listed building, on Wheathouse Road, has been sold to another Christian group.
Shabach Outreach Ministries Pentecostal is due to take over the site at the end of September.
Mr Matthews added: "There is some sadness but a church is about the people, not the building.
"We are not shutting down, we are just moving on."
The final Baptist service will be led by the church's pastor, the Rev Peter Brewer.
He is also due to retire at the end of the year.
