    We are a family friendly Anglican Church, part of the Diocese of Leeds, located 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 mature in faith and discern God's call, as we share God's  love and bring the benefits  of God's kingdom to our world.

    We would normally offer everyone a warm welcome to our services and have a mix of worship across the month with children's groups most Sundays. However this is not currently possible due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19). At the annual meeting in 2019 we had 157 adults on the electoral roll with  a good number of children. 

    For families, we usually run two midweek Toddler groups (term time) but these are not operating due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) and Messy Church which meets bi- monthly  but is currently suspended.

    For those with additional needs, their friends and families we have The ARK but this is currently suspended.

    We usually run a Care and Wellbeing  Cafe once a month - third Monday 1.30pm to 3.30pm - for those living with dementia and other related issues but these  are suspended. A smaller group for older people, Cake and Chat, meets on a first Monday in a month 2pm to 3.30pm also suspended.

    The April Nearly new Children's Clothing sale has been CANCELLED. The APCM has been postponed.
