About Us

Situated below Ilkley Moor, our church was designed by the famous Victorian architect Norman Shaw and dedicated in 1879. The rather austere exterior belies the treasures within; in addition to beautiful stained glass, there is a stunning reredos, a wonderful series of Stations of the Cross and a remarkable modern 'Madonna of the Moors' painting by a renowned local artist.

Our worship is in the Anglo-Catholic tradition with music playing an important part in our services - thanks to a talented Director of Music and junior and senior choirs. Regular masses are held, along with Choral Evensong on a Sunday, with Solemn Evensong & Benediction taking place on major feast days. Confessions are by appointment with our clergy. The newly built adjoining Parish Hall provides a venue for fellowship after services and a range of social activities.

St Margaret's caters for all ages and has a warm and welcoming congregation.
