Currently our Bellringers team comprises a band of 8 dedicated people, of whom 4 are experienced ringers and a further 4 who are at different stages of learning the craft. We also have an experienced ringer who is currently away at University but manages to join us ringing when he is able to fit in visits home. This means that what we ring is limited at the moment but more importantly - we are able to ring for Sunday Services.

 Besides our regular Monday practice and Sunday Service ringing, we rang Half muffled for Remembrance Day in November and we rang for all of the Christmas Services.

 Our Monday night practice is currently from 8pm to 9pm and as always, everyone is welcome.


We are looking to re-establish our Choir at St Michael's. We are looking for new adult members who may be willing to join and become part of our worshipping congregation. We engage with traditional hymns as well as some contemporary worship songs. If you might be interested do please get in touch.

Friendship Lunches

Our Friendship Lunch group began back in 2018 with a small team comprising Kath Barker, Lynette Wilson and Brenda Packham.  These lunches were designed to bring together those who felt lonely and isolated, sometimes never or very rarely meeting a friendly face to talk to and are well attended, typically accommodating up to 25 people each month.

The lunch, though not elaborate is usually varied, in warmer months with a mix of meats, fish and salad, followed by Brenda’s lovely, very memorable desserts. In the colder months, sometimes soup, followed by baked potatoes with fillings and a little salad on the side. Again followed by Brenda’s delicious dessert offerings.

 The lunches commence at 12 noon, and we open perhaps with a Bible reading or a seasonal message, and an appropriate prayer. They end with tea or coffee, and in between all of this, a jovial hub of chit chat and laughter is enjoyed. Donations for these lunches are optional. It’s the people that matter the most. 

Men's Group

The Men’s Group meets every 2nd Wednesday in the month at 7:30pm at East Ardsley Conservative Club. This is a social evening for members when they can relax with a pint and discuss present day events and occurrences.

 The group has historically organised Annual Dinners, and in 2023 our Annual Dinner went ahead as planned at the beginning of the year at the Holmfield House, Wakefield, when 16 members and guests attended. A good evening was had by all.

 Any men wishing to join the group or wanting to find out more information should contact John Theaker on 07787 310063.
