We Are A Place And A People Of Welcome And Meeting

  •  Welcome to Christchurch Ilkley

    Covid-19 Coronavirus Update - 25 March 2020

    Following the UK government’s statement of 23 March 2020, it is with great sadness that Christchurch is now closed and all services and activities suspended.
    The Christchurch Café is also now closed, as is Dan's Den.

    Although our building is closed, our church community is still here in Ilkley and beyond and we want to care for one another and those who need us through this time.

    Worship materials for adults and children will be produced to use at home. Please email mikedixon@blueyonder.co.uk to have your address added to the mailing, click on the links.

    Our prayer chain is running as usual: please ring 01943 0831779 if you would like to submit a prayer request.

    For pastoral care you can contact Roberta our minister and the pastoral team leader Jenny.
    Rev Roberta Topham - 01943 607870 - rev.robertatopham@gmail.com
    Mrs Jenny Freeman - 01943 511244

    In this time of loss and change, our love and prayers are with those who are unwell, those who care for them, and those deeply affected by the current situation of lockdown.

    We remember that Jesus is the light of the world, a light that no darkness has ever put out.


    Documents of advice (which can be read and downloaded) have been received from: the Methodist Church (17 March 2020), the United Reformed Church (17 March 2020), and the Church of England from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York (17 March 2020).


    Christchurch Ilkley is a busy and loving place - People of all ages, theological persuasions and backgrounds testify to the welcome they have received, and to the spiritual home they have found.

     

    Our worship offers a variety of styles at different times throughout the week.

    Our Vision is to have Christ at the centre of the church at the heart of the town.

    Christchurch is a joint Methodist / URC Local Ecumenical Partnership.

    Whether it's community activities in the spacious and active premises, prayer times, or in Housegroups, this meeting in love continues throughout the week.
