We are a family-friendly Anglican (Church of England) Church based in the East Ardsley parish, in the South Leeds Deanery, part of the Leeds Episcopal Area of the Diocese of Leeds.

We invite you to look around our website and get a feel for our Church. Feel free to share any comments or questions that might be on your mind through our Contact form on this page. If you're not currently a member of our Church - we'd like to take this opportunity to invite you to one of our weekly services. You will receive a warm welcome and we’ll make every effort to make sure that your first and following visits are happy and enjoyable. 

If you've never been to Church before and that feels daunting to you, you could always arrange to meet with our Priest in Charge, Revd Mark, beforehand. He would be more than happy to answer any questions and seek to address any concerns you might have. And of course, feel free to reach out and message or call one of our Ministry Team.

We hope you and your family will have a warm and Spirit-filled experience with us as we worship and fellowship together at our services, events, and activities. If you want a quick summary of what we are about, do download a copy of our Church Brochure below.

If you are in need of prayer, you can make an online prayer request. Your prayer request opens the door, and God is waiting patiently on the other side of that door, at all times, in all situations, to join with you.

Many blessings to you,

Revd Mark Watson, Priest in Charge

Mrs Kath Barker, Churchwarden
