“A new command I give you: Love
one another. As I have loved you,
so you must love one another.”

John 13:34

We endeavour to reach out beyond the parish boundaries to remind us that we are part of the world-wide Church.

We actively support the work and campaigns of Christian Aid, USPG (United Society Partners in the Gospel), Fairtrade and the Tiyanjane Clinic for patients with HIV/Aids in Malawi. 

An important local commitment is our support for the Otley Christian Resources Hub - providing a wide range of resources and support enabling local parishes to celebrate, encourage, affirm and develop their work with children and young people.


Three times a year we donate the profit from Sunday morning coffee to a wide variety of charities with either an overseas, local or UK focus. Recent recipients have been the St Gemma's Hospice, Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Autism
, Medicins sans Frontieres, Freedom from Torture and Toilet Twinning.
