    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.
