Welcome to the website of Ilkley Baptist Church

  • 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.



    You can join us online for our streamed service by heading for the Ilkley Baptist Church YouTube channel, or by clicking the link below:








    Just to keep you up to date, the Diaconate have been studying the Government Guidance (published Monday) and Baptist Union Advice (published yesterday) on how to go about re-opening church. These are both lengthy documents, and there are numerous challenges (and barriers) to overcome before we are able to open again.

    We have an online Deacons Meeting on Thursday, when we shall discuss this at length. We shall update you with our thoughts on the matter afterwards.

    If we cannot sing hymns, would you still attend church?
