• 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 2019 we had 157 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. Our next Messy Church will be on Saturday 19th October  from 3.15pm with a film Peter Rabbit followed by a free pasta meal. Our next ARK service (which will incorporate a celebration of the life of Jean Vanier) is on Sunday 3rd November at 3pm (service for those with disabilities, friends, family and carers). See VANIER for more details.
