WELCOME BACK! Services at Saint Michael and All Angels', Beckwithshaw have recommenced on Sundays at 11.30 a.m. Please note the new time. You will be asked to sit in designated areas and wear face masks for the duration of the service and, unfortunately, there will be no refreshments after services for the forseeable future. We do not anticipate a need to book your place so please just turn up. All pews have socially distanced measures in place and there are hand sanitiser stations in strategic areas. In addition, there will continue to be a live-streamed Sunday service from St Robert's, Pannal on YouTube. To keep to safe timelines the church will then be open for visiting on Wednesdays. Instructions for following the current guidelines regarding COVID-19 are displayed inside. The grounds are always open and outdoor seating donated by our friends at The Smiths Arms is available for your use.

We may be a small community church in Beckwithshaw, near Harrogate in North Yorkshire but we have a big, welcoming heart. Our church is very much here to serve the community, in family worship and in weddings, funerals and baptisms. We have close links with the school and a thriving Junior Church and hope that we may see you in the near future. We hope the information on these pages helps you find what you are looking for. We would love to personally welcome you to one of our weekly services. If you need to talk to our Vicar in person don’t be afraid to give him a call, or see him or a Churchwarden on Sundays if you have any questions - when we get back to normal.
St Michael and All Angels’ is a Parish Church serving the village of Beckwithshaw and the surrounding area. An excellent example of a Victorian Church in the Gothic Revival style with examples of fixtures and fittings in the style of the Arts and Crafts movement. Having recently become a Grade II listed building, the church has examples of fine stained glass windows portraying scenes from the Book of Revelation and carvings by William Pashley.

We are making some changes .........
As custodians of an important piece of our heritage we are looking to future proof the building for the next 100 years. The current heating lighting and facilities in the church building are not conducive to this. We are anxious to preserve the current features of the building but to bring it up to date with toilet and kitchen facilities.
