Position of Organist at Ilkley Baptist Church

Ideally we are looking for a full time organist to cover two services each Sunday, 10.45am and 6.30pm.
Good remuneration for the suitable applicant.
We would consider a part time/shared position. For further details please contact e mail gsunderland@blueyonder.co.uk or millingworth0@orange.co.uk

Mr Darwin’s Tree

Tickets are available now for a one man play called ‘Mr Darwin’s Tree’ which focuses in on Charles Darwin’s development of evolutionary theory (without delving into the scientific details) and parallel examination of his faith, as well as the responses to his new theory from a number of different people. It brings out the tension between science and evolutionary theory that people felt in the 19th Century and challenges the standard simplistic ‘science at war with faith’ myth.  The play has a positive message from both a faith and a scientific perspective.  The actor Andrew Harrison, of Riding Lights Theatre company, will perform the play on Friday November 6th and Saturday November 7th at 8:00pm in the Clarke Foley Centre, Cunliffe Road, Ilkley. Tickets are £8 to cover costs and any profits will be donated to the Revival Centre in Matugga Uganda supported by churches in Ilkley.  Tickets are available on the door each evening.

Happy Easter!

Alleluia – Christ is Risen!

And the sun rose over Arncliffe Crags as about 70 people gathered in the Cow and Calf Rocks in Ilkley to greet the happy morning on which we celebrate our Saviour’s resurrection. The sun shone over the fog which covered the valley, as our Lord shines over us in our fog and lostness. Let us celebrate basking in his glory.
