    Welcome to the parish church of Christ Church, Skipton 

    People: Like all churches, the most important thing is the people. We are an open and friendly family who come together to find joy, peace and meaning in following Jesus Christ.

    Worship: Our worship is largely traditional in style in that the ministers wear robes (or vestments) and we sing hymns. During Holy Communion (or the Eucharist) the focus is on Jesus Christ giving himself to us in the Bread and the Wine, as at the Last Supper.  We place quite a high emphasis on this part of our worship which is sometimes known as the High Church tradition. Our evening services may have a more informal tone with an emphasis on prayer and reflection. All services are family friendly and open to everyone.

    Place: Christ Church is a beautiful building located on Cross Street, Skipton although visible and easily accessed via the main Keighley Road. Feel welcome to visit. Look out for special open days in the local press and on the church noticeboard.




    The Archbishops and Bishops of the Church of England have urged everyone to follow the instructions given by the Prime Minister in a national effort to limit the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19). As a Church we “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”.

    These are difficult times and we appreciate that many will be feeling concerned and apprehensive and in need of prayer time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We are doing our best to adapt our ministry and mission accordingly and we hope that we can continue to provide all the support that is required during these difficult times.God bless you.
