St Mary’s is the parish church on the edge of Keighley.
The most important thing about any church is the PEOPLE. The church building is always less important than the people who come to it, whether they be people who come to worship God regularly or occasionally or those who come for any other purpose.
At St Mary’s we put a great emphasis on WELCOMING all people, from the youngest baby through to the most senior inhabitants of Riddlesden and the surrounding area.
The heart of any church is the regular WORSHIP that takes place on Sundays and midweek, coupled with those one-off special occasions throughout the year like Christmas and Easter. In worship we allow ourselves to be opened up to the LOVE that God has for every person – and as we receive that love we respond to God in praise and prayer, and in love and service to the people around us, and indeed to the world as a whole.
If you would like to come and worship God with us, you don’t have to wait for an invitation – just come as you are!
