  • Hello and welcome to the Eldwick Church website

    We are living in strange and difficult times and are having to adapt to new ways of living.  As a church we want to give the best we can to the Eldwick community.

    We believe in a loving God who wants the best for us. We believe that God demonstrated that love by coming in Jesus, who experienced life in every aspect both good and bad before dying on a cross.  We rejoice that death could not hold Jesus and that he was resurrected on Easter Sunday, defeating the consequences of death.

    Our objective is to show and act out God’s love for his creation.  And of course, sometimes we fail, but we know that God loves to forgive those who recognise their failures.

    Normally we try to meet the basic needs of local people – of faith and of non-faith – by holding regular services, and by accommodating both happy occasions such as weddings, wedding blessings, baptisms (christenings) and thanksgivings, and also sad occasions, such as helping people who are saying goodbye to loved family members or friends at a funeral.  Sadly, the Covid-19 pandemic has put a stop to all that.

    So for the moment, as you go past the church you will notice our ‘Prayer Field’ with its knitted flowers.  Each flower is a prayer said or made by the person, young or old, who planted it.  Please feel free to plant your own prayer flower.  If you feel it would help you, we have a team standing by who would love to pray for you.  Just send us an email to eldwickchurchprayer@gmail.com in confidence and a member of the church will pray for you; maybe you will let us know what happens.

    You’ll notice that we use the term ‘we’. However, it is not ‘our’ church as it belongs to the whole of the Eldwick community, so it is your church as well.

    When this pandemic is over, and we can re-open the building, why not come along and see us.

    God bless

    Peter (Minister)

     

    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 under the Church Life page.)

    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 used extensively by many local groups and organisations for social, recreational and other purposes.  However, please see the note below describing the current situation, arising from the COVID-19 pandemic.

    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 - under the Special Services page.)

    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.

    God Bless
    Peter
    (Minister)
