Following recent guidance from the national Methodist Church on Tuesday 17 March, we have taken the decision to suspend all services and fellowship activities at St. John's, Settle, for the time being. We hope that we might be able to open the church on Sunday mornings and at times during the week for personal prayer and reflection, but there will be no organised collective worship. (Look out for details of this) See St John's Facebook Page - for the latest news, especially with respect to coronavirus. (which may be more up to date than this website).

Also see the Coronavirus page of the Settle Methodist Circuit Website for lates news

Note: Settle as a whole has a Community Response number to phone - 01729 825493 and website : if you need help, or want to offer help, or have enquiries. Individual Villages (e.g. Langcliffe) also have their response teams that Settle will be able to tell you about.
