Hello and welcome to the Eldwick Church website
So who are we? The Eldwick Church is the result of a partnership between St Lawrence's Church of England church and Eldwick Methodist Church. It is based at the former St Lawrence church.
Our members are from different backgrounds and cultures, with a range of ideas and perspectives. We are joined together through our love for God, as revealed in Jesus Christ, and a desire to serve and share God's love in the world today, especially within the Eldwick community. All are welcome and we warmly invite you to come and join us!
We meet every Sunday at 10:30am for our main service, except on rare special occasions. Normally our service will be family worship or family communion. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays we also have a separate communion service at 9:15am. (There is more information about services on this website.)
We are delighted that our building project is complete. The second phase (linking the church and hall to provide a café area and expanding the worship space by 50%) was finished in Spring 2019 and is now in use.
As a church we want to give the best we can to the Eldwick community. We aim to accommodate the basic needs of faith and non-faith local people by accommodating both happy occasions such as weddings, wedding blessings, baptisms (christenings) and thanksgivings, and also sad occasions, such as helping people saying goodbye to loved family members and friends at a funeral. (More details can be found elsewhere on the website.)
The Eldwick Church is situated on Otley Road Eldwick, next door to the Memorial Hall. The post code is BD16 3EQ.
We look forward to meeting you.
Latest Newsletter: Sunday 29th March 2020
We have now received official advice from both the Methodist and Anglican denominations that public worship is suspended.
From the CofE:
In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice."
The Archbishops of Canterbury and York say,
"We have called, along with our fellow church leaders, for a day of prayer and action this coming Sunday - Mothering Sunday (22nd March). Mothering Sunday has always been both a day of celebration for many and a sensitive and emotional day for some. Wherever you are this Sunday please do join in this day of prayer and action and remember especially those who are sick or anxious, and all involved in our Health Service. As one action, we are calling on everyone to place a lighted candle in their window at 7.00 p.m. as a sign of solidarity and hope in the light of Christ that can never be extinguished.
The advice from the Church of England is echoed by the Methodist Church, who have said,
"It is with sadness that we recommend that worship services in Methodist Churches are suspended for the time being in line with Government guidance."
