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.



    This Sunday, 24th February, we have our Annual Church Covenant Service at 10.45am.  This is a very traditional service that allows us all to renew our promises to God

    All are welcome to attend and to hear what a Covenant actually means, and we will be partaking in Communion as we renew our promises. 

    After the Service we have our Covenant meal, to which all are invited! 

    There is no evening service on Sunday, 24th February. 





    On Sunday, 27th January, we are going to have our first "Cafe Church" during the evening service.  We shall gather at 6-30pm, and the theme will be "our favourite music"

    We shall listen to some music clips that some of our congregation have put forward, and reflect on what they mean to us spiritually.  These clips will include Hymns, pop songs, classical music and other snippets that have really mean something to us.  

    As it is Cafe Church, we shall have tea and coffee (and cakes) during the service and we shall finish with the perfect dessert - communion!
