• 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 2017 we had 148 adults on the electoral roll with  a good number of children. We offer everyone a  very warm welcome to our services.

    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 and our next Messy Church event will be a Good Friday family service from 9.30am to 11.30am on 30th March including mini breakfast and Easter gardens. You will also be very welcome to our Easter Sunday services at 8am traditional Communion and 10am Family Communion.
