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.



    On Sunday, 29th September, 2019, at 10-45am, the church will be celebrating Harvest with a traditional Harvest Festival Service.  Suitable for all ages, this is also a perfect "dementia friendly" service, as we will sing well know harvest hymns, such as "All things bright and beautiful" and "we plough the fields and scatter".

    We shall be raising money for the BMS World Mission harvest appeal, which will this year benefit refugees from South Sudan.  We shall also be collecting tins of food for local provision to the needy through Ilkley Foodbank.

    For those attending the morning service, we have a special (and free) harvest Lunch afterwards to which everyone is invited!

    In our evening service at 6-30pm, we shall also be focusing on Harvest, but with a more contemporary setting.  Again, all are welcome!



    2019 saw the Church undertake yet another successful Haiti Tea.  Over £860 was raised to benefit "Beyond Borders", which maintains the church's wish to continue with Missional activities in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

    A big thank you to Anne Wilkinson and her team of volunteers for organising the event.

    Would you be interested in a trip to the Holyland if the church arranged one in 2020?
