A WARM WELCOME!
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.

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 would like to do something imaginative with the space so that the building has a viable use and a vibrant future. We are also anxious to preserve the current features of the building and to tell it’s story in the context of the social history of our village.

REFURBISHMENT AND ANNEXE UPDATE NOVEMBER 2018
Over the past few weeks the altar has been moved to its original position of 1886 which is immediately below the reredos. The work has revealed more of the original Victorian tiling and the marble slab on which the altar stands.
OCTOBER 2018 The new central heating boiler has been installed, commissioned and is working just in time for those cold winter Sundays! The notice board has been agreeed upon and ordered. Bell ringers have started practising on Monday evenings again and are making a joyful noise on the whole! If you would like to join them contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 531261.
