St Margaret's, Ilkley

Our beautiful church is ready to offer you a warm welcome for a service or a visit at any time.  Please go to our website or Facebook page for up-to-date news, service times, and events:

We are a large and growing family of Christians, seeking to deepen our faith, engage with our community and worship our Lord “in the beauty of holiness” (Ps. 96. 9).

Our worship since the foundation of the church in 1879 has been firmly rooted in the Anglo-Catholic tradition and we celebrate that today with full choral services with our excellent choir and organist, vestments, incense, plainchant and ritual.  You will find here a colourful, living expression of the ancient worship of the Church.  Mystery, beauty and symbolism are all important parts of our worship but we seek to create a space in which all may encounter the Lord just as they are.  We hope that whether it is your first time in church or you have been worshipping for decades, you may come closer to God and deepen your relationship with him here.  We would love to see you soon.  All are welcome.
