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 only two 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.

  • OUR HARVEST SERVICE IS NOW ONLINE

    We are disappointed that we cannot meet in person for our Harvest Service, but we can all still join in with the Streamed service.  You can find it on the church YouTube channel or at https://youtu.be/W4Uxocuv6aQ

    We shall have the Foodbank Table at our service on 4th October, so you can bring in your food for the Foodbank at that service.  Likewise, we will be able to collect any donations for the BMS Harvest Appeal on that day, or you will find a slide on the Streamed Service explaining how you can donate online, or by telephone.

     

    CONGRATULATIONS TO THE NEW MARRIED COUPLE!

    It's been a while since our last wedding, but we celebrated on Saturday, 26th September, 2020, when we had the pleasure of marrying Martyn Stocker and Rebecca Swann.

    Like so many engaged couples, their wedding plans had been thrown into turmoil by Covid, and the constantly changing wedding guidance from the government.  Fortunately, they were able to reschedule their big day, just two days before wedding guest numbers would have been halved in two!

    We had a socially distanced wedding, with no singing (sob-sob), and only the Minister and the Bride and Groom able to dispense with the facemasks for the ceremony.

    Congratulations Mr and Mrs Stocker!

     

    WE'RE CLOSED AGAIN - BUT JUST FOR ONE WEEK!

    One of our congregation let us know midweek that her son was displaying coronavirus symptoms. As he had not been able to get a test at that time, we made a decision to err on the side of safety and to close the church for this week's Sunday Service. 

    The good news is that the test has now come back negative, and we give thanks for that.  It is too late now to reinstate the live service, so we have our Streamed Harvest Service on Sunday, 27th September.

    We shall continue to put the safety of our congregation first, and the church will reopen again for worship at 10-45am on Sunday, 4th October, 2020
