Our Building

Open daily between 10 and 4 for private prayer and reflection.

We are a Grade II listed Victorian church built in the Gothic-revival style. We have beautiful stained glass windows and a Father Willis organ. The church is open most days throughout the year for visitors and quiet contemplation.

Music and Worship

The small team of bell ringers practices on Mondays at 6.30 p.m. New ringers are always welcome - no previous experience necessary. Telephone 01423 507697 if you would like to come along and meet us.

Occasionally we hold concerts to fund-raise for church finances. Details are on our website at www.stmichaelsbeckwithshaw.org

We are very fortunate to have a Father Willis built organ which is still in regular use. We could always use occasional organists for playing at Sunday services if you are interested.

Groups, Courses and Activities

Run at St Robert's, Pannal. Please see website at www.stmichaelsbeckwithshaw.org for more details.

There is a regular Coffee Morning held at the village hall - every second Tuesday. Not organised by the church but attended by several members. Lots of cake and coffee and conversation. You will always be made welcome. More details from Kath on 565812.

Help for Visitors

Information relating to the stained glass windows, the tower bells, the organ and other areas of the church can be found within the church and on our website.

The church is opened on most days throughout the year between around 10.00 and 4.00. Please feel very welcome to pop in and sit quietly for a few moments in your busy day or use the space for quiet contemplation and reflection. Why not combine a visit with lunch at the popular Smiths Arms across the road .........
