•  Welcome to Christchurch Ilkley

    We are open for both face to face worship and via Zoom.

    • Booking places no longer required.
    • Singing (quietly) is now allowed!

    Christchurch Sunday Worship materials will be available on the Wharfedale and Aireborough Circuit Worship at Home page of their website from each Monday.  This service material will be emailed out to you if you request it from the church administrator (at office@christchurchilkley.org.uk). 

    Our prayer chain is running as usual: please ring 01943 831779 if you would like to submit a prayer request. There are two prayer times by Zoom each week. For further information please contact the church administrator (tempchristchurchoffice@gmail.com ).

    For pastoral care you can contact Roberta our minister and the pastoral team leader Jenny.
    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.

    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, even if access to our building is limited.
