•  Welcome to Christchurch Ilkley

    As of 01 January 2021, we will NOT be opening our building for Sunday services due to the rising cases numbers of Covid.

    Sunday Service 10:00am by Zoom - weekly
    We will be continuing the 10:00am service by Zoom. A link to this with more details will be sent out each Friday. You will be able to access this service from your computer, tablet or phone wherever you are.

    Sunday Service 4:00pm in the Worship Area - fortnightly - CANCELLED
    We will also be starting a short service in the Worship Area at 4:00pm to run every other week. Places are limited and if you wish to attend this, you are invited to ring Jenny Freeman to book your place. Social distancing, wearing masks and hand sanitising will all be mandatory.

    Although our building is only open for limited activities at the moment, 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.

    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 tempchristchurchoffice@gmail.com).  Sunday talks are now being uploaded to our Christchurch YouTube channel after the Sunday services, whenever possible.

    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 looks forward to being 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.
