Welcome to the website of Ilkley Baptist Church

  • Whether you are a member of our congregation, a visitor to the area, or someone who is just curious about what happens in the Church, you are all equally welcome!

    We are a small but, we believe, a very welcoming and friendly Church sited in the historic town of Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

    We meet to worship every Sunday at 10.45am and most Sundays at 6-30pm, when we are joined by members of other denominations, as few churches in Ilkley have an evening service.  Communion is normally served at the second morning service of the month (and the fifth if there is one!) as well as on the fourth evening of the month.

    We also run a number of additional activities during the week. More information can be found in our Church Life section.

    The Church is fitted with an Induction loop system for those hard of hearing. We have wheelchair access via a ramp and we also have facilities for the less able.

    If you are in the area and looking for a place to worship, we would love to see you at our services or events.



    We have just received the sad news that Ivor Waddelow, former Minister at Ilkley Baptist Church, passed away last week.

    Ivor was Minister at this church from 1984 until 1993, following Alec Cook and preceeding John Morgan-Wynne.

    David will be representing the Church at Ivor's funeral, which is to be held at Forest of Dean Crematorium at Cinderford, at 3-30pm on Monday, 13th August.  If anyone would like to attend please speak to David as we have room in the car.



    July 8th saw us welcome Mark to the Church.  Mark is a doctor and surgeon who has chosed to work for the Baptist Missionary Society in Chad, along with his wife Andrea, who is also a doctor.  

    Mark led both the morning and evening services, and also joined us for lunch.  During that time we were able to learn a lot about life in Chad and the problems that thjey face.  We were also given a few topics for prayer that would help them in their Missional activities.
