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.

Anybody and everybody is welcome to join us at worship.

We have been granted a Child Friendly Church Award by the URC and are part of the Additional Needs Alliance

Our building is wheelchair accessible, has a hearing loop in the church and has accessible toilets on each floor. 

Five times per year we hold inclusive “ALL, Together” services welcoming all ages and abilities to join in PRAISING, MAKING and SHARING.
