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.
PALM SUNDAY SERVICE NOW ACTIVE
YouTube is now operating normally, and our Palm Sunday Worship Service is online on the Ilkley Baptist Church YouTube channel. You can view the service by clicking this link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dtkT6aVjPE&t=151s
During the transmission I mentioned two other transmissions that may be of interest. If you would like to visit the International Evangelical Church of the Algarve please click on https://kerkdienstgemist.nl/…/1882-International-Eva…/events
Phil Jump, Regional Minister for the NorthWestern Baptist Association has also compiled an online remembrance for loved ones who have passed away, and for whom the normal funeral service was impossible. You can view this at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyHQSxH4xs4&t=25s
DELAY TO OUR PALM SUNDAY SERVICE TRANSMISSION
Well, David has worked a nightshift on Saturday evening, as YouTube has been unbelievably slow, and after 10 hours I have now been told to "try later today!"
Unfortunately, these things happen when they have no staff in the office to fix network problems due to coronavirus.
We will attempt to upload the service this morning, but it may well be this afternoon or evening before you can see it. Apologies again, but this is outside of our control.
SUNDAY 5th APRIL - STREAMED SERVICE
We shall have our second streamed church service on Sunday, 5th April. Again, because many of our congregation have carers coming in at different times of the day, we have decided to pre-record the service and place it on Youtube on our dedicated Ilkley Baptist Church YouTube page. This means that you can tune-in to the service at whatever time suits you best.
Our first streamed service went well, so we have added an extra evening service on Maundy Thursday to our Sunday Services, which means we can worship three times from our homes in Holy Week. The text that we advertised last week has been moved to the Maundy Thursday Service, so on Palm Sunday we will be reading from Matthew's Gospel, Chapter 21 and the first eleven verses.
We will have our usual combination of prayer, hymns and a sermon as part of our worship. The worship music has been kindly donated, royalty free, by ISingWorship. This means that the style of music may be slightly more "modern" than we usually have at morning worship!
The sermon will again be published on this site on Sunday for those unable to view the service. We will also post a link on this site on Sunday morning to take people directly to the worship service. We would encourage you to view at 10-45am, if you can, as if it was an actual service in our church.
