The recent online Christmas Fair raised an amazing £648 and was boosted by a private donation of £250 plus a £600 donation from Caddick Construction company of Wakefield who are building locally and wanted to support our 'kitchen and toilet extension fund'. The pic is of the official presentation of the cheque to Rev Abbie and Churchwarden Jon prior to Christmas. We are still supplying a link to LOCAL ONLINE SHOPS SELLING GIFTS AND GOODS - INCLUDING JON'S JAMS who supported us during the Christmas Fair and who continue to trade in troubled times. Please support them if you can. You can also use it to make a donation to church funds at any time. A massive thank you to all those who supported the church by baking, making, donating and buying.

We may be a small community church in Beckwithshaw, near Harrogate in North Yorkshire but we have a big, welcoming heart. 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 hope the information on these pages helps you find what you are looking for. We would love to personally welcome you to one of our weekly services. 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.

We are making some changes .........
As custodians of an important piece of our heritage we are looking to future proof 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.
