Welcome to the website of Silsden Methodist Church

Silsden Methodist Church is a busy church and home to a wide range of activities organised by the church, as well as being used as a venue by external organisations. Rooms are available for hire for one off and regular events (contact details can be found on the lettings page.)

Church is open (and tea and coffee are being served) on Wednesday and Friday mornings plus the first Saturday of each month. During these times the Minister, a Church Steward or a member of the Church Leadership Team is usually available.

Our Mission

Silsden Methodist Church aims to be a living witness to our Lord within our community, our Circuit and beyond.

To embrace our Mission, we seek to fulfil these aims:

WORSHIP – will be accessible to all, open to exploring a range of worship styles, ensuring that worship is inclusive

LEARNING & CARING – Learning begins with worship, from which we aim to develop further opportunities for people to grow in faith and understanding. In order to do this caring is foremost, through living our faith within the community.

SERVICE – we will serve the community of Silsden wherever we can, whilst not losing sight of the needs of the wider world.

EVANGELISM – we will equip our church family to share their faith in everyday life as well as in worship situations.

OUR PRIORITIES – Over the next 5 years we will:
Provide more opportunities for worship, prayer and fellowship for all age groups

Increase the church’s visible presence within our community

Make the church more family-orientated

Ensure that provision for young people is both appropriate and appealing
