Northcliffe is a partnership formed from Shipley United Reformed Church and Hall Royd Methodists. We are a welcoming church with people from 1 to 90+ years. An active Sunday school meets through the year, (except in the Summer Holidays.) Several groups use our buildings, some are connected to the church.

We meet for worship at 10.30 am each Sunday. Some services are led by ministers, others by local, lay preachers. Every 3rd Sunday in the month is our all age service which is for all ages from -1 to 90+ years. Before our service on the 2nd Sunday of each month we hold a small, intimate communion service at 9.30 am. One Sunday of each month is a communion service.

Anybody and everybody is welcome to join us at worship.
