Skipton: Christ Church

Welcome to Christ Church, a lively, friendly, warm and welcoming church situated in a beautiful Victorian Grade ll* listed building on the south side of the market town of Skipton in the Yorkshire Dales.

We follow what is best described as a ‘liberal catholic’ tradition. The Eucharist is central to our worship and the clergy wear Eucharistic vestments. We celebrate the Eucharist regularly on Wednesday and Sunday mornings, and in addition we celebrate many Feast Days (full details can be found in the Services and Events section in the left hand menu).

Music plays an integral role in our worship, provided by our accomplished organists playing a magnificent instrument installed by Harrison and Harrison of Durham in 1905, which is listed as Grade ll* by the British Institute of Organ Studies.

We have a lively Sunday School, which takes place in church during the service. We especially welcome children and young families, and indeed anyone seeking support to follow God’s Word from a loving and inclusive Christian community.

Tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits are served on Sunday after the service and members of the congregation love to stay and chat to their friends and visitors.

We are excited to be offering a Lent Course this year which will be led by Rev'd Emma and will take place in person from 7.30 to 9.30pm over five Wednesday evenings in Lent (February 21st and 28th, and March 6th, the 13th (at our sister church of St Mary the Virgin in the village of Carleton) and on the 20th).

We'll be looking together at the York Course, the Gift of Christ, which considers issues around: the generosity of God; discovering our gift; being with Jesus; when things go wrong; and how God changes everything.

Each session will close with a short (optional) service of Compline.

Do let Rev'd Emma ([email protected]) or Rev'd Kathia ([email protected]) know if you are interested in coming along.
