• We are a family friendly Anglican Church, part of the Diocese of Leeds, locally 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 grow 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 currently have reopened our Church for worship on a limited basis. Initially this will be at 8.45am each Sunday with Zoom services continuing at 10am. Please click here for guidance
