WELCOME BACK! Our church is open for visiting on Tuesdays and Fridays between 10 and 4. Instructions for following the current guidelines regarding COVID-19 are displayed inside. We are hopeful that congregational services within our churches will start again at the beginning of September. The grounds are always open and new seating donated by our friends at The Smiths Arms across the road is available for your use.
Reverend John and Reverend Abbie are working hard with new technology to bring daily worship opportunities into our homes via Youtube, Facebook and Dropbox. We have a Youtube channel where you can join in our regular Sunday services at 10.00 a.m. or at a time to suit you.
The latest update from our clergy regarding the future use of our church can be found here (14.7.2020)

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 - when we get back to normal.
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.

REFURBISHMENT AND ANNEXE UPDATE JUNE 2020Obviously due to the Covid-19 lockdown we have been unable to further any plans for refurbishment since the beginning of the year and the Churchwardens are currently looking at ways to re-open the churches safely in line with Church of England guidance.
