    We may be a small community church in Beckwithshaw, near Harrogate in North Yorkshire but we have a big, welcoming heart.

    We hope the information on these pages helps you find what you are looking for. We would love to personally welcome you and perhaps to see you join us for worship. If you need to talk to our Vicar in person don’t be afraid to give him a call, or see him or a Churchwarden on Sundays if you have any questions.

    St Michael and All Angels’ is a Parish Church serving the village of Beckwithshaw and the surrounding area. An excellent example of a Victorian Church in the Gothic Revival style with examples of fixtures and fittings in the style of the Arts and Crafts movement. Having recently become a Grade II listed building, the church has examples of fine stained glass windows portraying scenes from the Book of Revelation and carvings by William Pashley.

    Our church is very much here to serve the community, in family worship and in weddings, funerals and baptisms. We have close links with the school and a thriving Junior Church and hope that we may see you in the near future. For details of our Afternoon Tea in the church garden please click on the poster.

    In troubled times we need prayers for courage and wisdom to move forward as a nation united.


  • We need to make some changes .........

    As custodians of an important piece of our heritage we are looking to protect the building for the next 100 years. The current heating lighting and facilities in the church building are not conducive to this. We are anxious to preserve the current features of the building but to bring it up to date with toilet and kitchen facilities.

    The latest updates to our plans can be found by clicking here for more information


    New plans are afoot to develop the south side of the church to add a kitchen and toilets rather than knocking through the rear wall - an option which was looking too costly to pursue. The notice board has been ordered - it was put on hold awaiting a decision on new order of weekly services.  The railings and ironwork will be painted in April by members of the Community Payback team.  The fire extinguishers are all checked and tested. A specially commissioned altar table has been ordered to replace the rather rickety, fold-down table currently used for weekly Communion services.  (Donations are very welcome towards this and other works).

    Bell ringers, old and new, are practising on Monday evenings at 6.30 and are making a joyful noise on the whole!  If you would like to join them please contact churchwarden@stmichaelsbeckwithshaw.org or see our Who's Who page for more contact details.
