St John's is an Anglican Church part of the Diocese of Leeds. It is located in Ben Rhydding at the foot of the beautiful Ilkley Moor.We are a family friendly church centred in our local community. At the annual meeting in April 2016 we had 150 adults on the electoral roll with a good number of children. We offer everyone a very warm welcome to our services.
Welcome to St John's Ben Rhydding
We have a very well used Church Hall which hosts a wide range of events for our community including dance, music, arts, childrens groups and U3A events. We also run Messy Church on a regular basis with the next Messy Church on Saturday 17th September from 3.15pm followed by a free pasta meal.We are currently in the process of renewing our church roof and have just completed phase one (north side) having raised over £50,000. The roof is over 100 years old and the oak pegs holding the slates are failing. So we still need to raise a further £100,000 to complete the next two phases and we would welcome donations to help us in this project. If you would like to donate please click here My Donate. We have an upcoming event on Saturday 10th September - St John's Art Day, a free event to help celebrate St John's in art, drawing, poetry etc. All very welcome.Our second Church magazine (Spring/Summer edition) is now available.
