We are a family friendly Anglican Church, part of the Diocese of Leeds, locally centrally in Ben Rhydding, at the foot of the beautiful Ilkley Moor.
Our vision is to be a growing Christian family that encourages each member to grow in faith and discern God's call, as we share God's love and bring the benefits of God's kingdom to our world.
At present, we are meeting on line every Sunday at 10am using the Zoom app. You are very welcome to join us. We are uploading this service as an interactive service sheet with links to songs, prayers and the talk for the day to use in your own time. See On line services If you just want to hear the talk, the audio version can be accessed via Sermons.
The Church is now OPEN for private prayer and reflection on Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 8pm and Sunday afternoons from 1pm to 3pm. Please enter via the front entrance and respect social distancing.
The ARK, our service with and for those with additional needs, their families and friends, is meeting on line fortnightly - please contact us for more details.
