• Whether you are a member of our congregation, a visitor to the area, or someone who is just curious about what happens in the Church, you are all equally welcome!

    We are a small but, we believe, a very welcoming and friendly Church sited in the historic town of Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

    We meet to worship every Sunday at 10.45am, and most Sundays at 6-30pm,  when we are joined by members of other denominations, as only two churches in Ilkley have an evening service.  Communion is normally served at the second morning service of the month (and the fifth if there is one!) as well as on the fourth evening of the month.

    We also run a number of additional activities during the week. More information can be found in our Church Life section.

    The Church is fitted with an Induction loop system for those hard of hearing. We have wheelchair access via a ramp and we also have facilities for the less able.

    If you are in the area and looking for a place to worship, we would love to see you at our services or events.



    Our Streamed Communion service is uploaded onto the Church YouTube channel.  Look out your bread and wine (or juice) and join us to celebrate the Lord's Supper together.

    We also have another of our Fairtrade videos, as we reach the midpoint of Fairtrade fortnight

    Our Streamed Worship service takes us back to the first book of the Bible.  Come and hear about the part of the rainbow!

    We also have a video on Fairtrade to mark the start of Fairtrade fortnight.

    The Diaconate met on Zoom on Thursday Evening to discuss the re-opening plans.  If you remember, we set a provisional date of 21st February, as this was the first Sunday after the Government said they would update the Covid arrangements, which was initially set for the 15th of February.

    Unfortunately, the Government have pushed the update back to the week commencing 22nd February.  The current Baptist Union advice, and that of the Government, is that churches should remain closed, and in Ilkley all denominations have followed this advice.

    We have canvassed many members, and many are not happy attending until they have received their Covid Jabs.  Accordingly, we have decided that we will re-start live worship at the church on Sunday, 14th March, which is Mothering Sunday.  You may know that 'Mothering Sunday' was traditionally the day that people returned to their home (mother) church after having been away.  This seems highly appropriate, and a fitting way to mark our return!  Streamed worship will continue up to, and after, that date.  There is light at the end of the tunnel......
