Read on for details of Services by Facebook, Circuit Zoom Prayer meeting on the 8th of each month, Zoom Coffee mornings.. and more..

Online services, led by Tim Broughton, posted on our Facebook page at 10.30 or 11 am a.m. every Sunday. These services have contributions from members of Ingleton and Settle congregations and others. Posted on YouTube later in the day.

Short services of Evening Prayer, led by Rev. Stephen Caddy and Christine Caddy will also be posted on Facebook at 6.30 p.m. every Sunday.

We are now (since July) meeting in church at 10.30 a.m. every Sunday, but we would like to continue to meet in as safe a way as possible. To that end we continue to recommend that we should observe social distancing, as we have over the past few weeks, and we also recommend the continued wearing of masks. We are now allowing the congregational singing of hymns, but in order to help everyone feel safe we would prefer this to be done with masks on. The service will also be relayed into the coffee lounge for anyone who would prefer to sit slightly outside the main church (with or without a mask) but still participate in the service. For those of you who do not yet feel ready to come to church, online services (morning and evening) will continue on our Facebook page and on YouTube.
