Bishop Toby of Bradford
“All Saints is a dynamic and vibrant church at the centre of the historic town of Ilkley. Over the years, the church has received a greater sense of unity and shared vision. There have been positive developments in its ministry with children and young people, its relationship with the town and in developing and sending out leaders’.
A Caring Worshiping Family
We are a friendly, caring welcoming family. A buzzing place during the week serving and supporting. We gather to worship Jesus, inspired by God’s word, moved by the music and celebrate the diversity of worship styles.
We are a church family from toddlers to elderly people. Children love to come for the ‘best hour of the week’ and adults love to smell the coffee as they come into Church. All in all, our faith is challenged and we are growing.
Vision and Values
Our vision is about people and God’s Kingdom work. We want to see more coming into an ever-deepening relationship with God that overflows with His blessing to the people of Ilkley and beyond.
Our values are equally important by the way we express God’s love, to know more of the power and presence of the Holy Spirit and be willing to become more of a loving and generous church community.
Our New Incumbent
We are seeking our new incumbent to be a strategic, inspirational leader with excellent teaching and team building skills; able to develop All Saints Ilkley further as a ‘resourcing church’ and work creatively to build on relationships within the town. We’re looking for someone who can develop new, traditional and all-age worship styles; a natural communicator able to get alongside all people, passionate, discerning and committed to being a person after God’s own heart and faithful to His word.
We are an active, growing church with many gifted and talented people in our congregation and seek to support you in your ministry here.
Ilkley - a great place to live!
Ilkley nestles at the foot of Ilkley Moor in Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales. With excellent schools and a bustling friendly town with a range of high-quality shops, cafes, restaurants alongside leisure and sporting facilities and good travel connections to close cities of Leeds and Bradford, Ilkley is a great place to live.
The modern spacious detached Vicarage has a southerly aspect, has commanding views of Ilkley Moor and the famous Cow and Calf Rocks and lies adjacent to the town’s lido pool, and cricket grounds. On the north side of the River Wharfe, it is a few minutes by car to church and town.
