Hebden Royd Methodist Church: God inspired, Christ centred, Spirit filled

Our mission is to worship and serve God through our community to:

  • Increase awareness of God's presence and to celebrate God's love;
  • Be a good neighbour to people in need and to challenge injustice;
  • Help people to grow and learn as Christians;
  • Make more followers of Jesus Christ.

We offer you a warm welcome and invite you to share with us.

Our worship

We are open for worship on Sunday mornings at 10:30am. Fellowship continues with refreshments after the service. We have some services in the hall as café worship, some pick and mix services, some services with the Ignite Assembly band, some themed services, like fairtrade, and some traditional services. We are open to all new ideas and suggestions from congregation members and the younger people.

Some of our Church community continue to worship at home by following Worship at Home services provided by our Minister and the Vine.

Sunday Evening services at 6pm continue via Zoom and may be in the style of Taize, Celtic Evening Worship, reflection and discussion. Contact the Church if you would like to join in. Email is to Hebden Royd Methodist Church (

There is always a warm welcome for all who worship with us. We have a thriving Sunday Club for families and we invite all adults whatever age, race, gender or sexual orientation. We can offer weddings and funerals and have recently been registered to perform same sex marriage.

Sunday Club

Our Sunday club for young people is growing. We have 6 families and up to14 young people aged 4 – 14, although not everyone attends every week there is a real church family of all ages developing, much to our delight. The Sunday club meets in the hall and comes into the service for the last 5- 10 minutes to show and tell.

Monday Fellowship Group

This is a group open to all for friendly worship, discussion, bible study, prayer, chat and virtual refreshments. It is led by group members and held via Zoom.
Contact the Church if you would like to join in. Email Hebden Royd Methodist Church (

Community Hub

After opening as a warm space during November to February we now open every Friday as a community Hub. We are running a 'Kids Matter' group, with help from Calder Community Cares, from 10-11,30 am, Soup Dragon lunches and general fellowship from 11.30 until approximately 3pm. There is input from Health and well being services and Calder food support. This may develop further into a young family get together facility in the mornings, so watch this space!

Other activities

Friendship Café, Men's Meal, Wednesday coffee at the 'Oldgate', 3 Lent services at the 'White Swan' and any one-off ideas that take our fancy. We are a vibrant and friendly group

Hebden Royd Churches Together

We have a good relationship with other churches in Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd. Together we support different Christian Aid projects. Currently we are raising funds for supporting Syrian Refugees in Iraq and Lebanon.

Morning Glory Clinic, Nairobi

We continue to support The Morning Glory Clinic in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.


The church building was opened in 1975 as an amalgamation of three Methodist societies in Hebden Bridge. It is the third chapel on the site which originally accommodated Salem, an offshoot of Heptonstall. The first church was built and opened in 1824, being replaced in 1885 by an imposing structure with accommodation for 1050.

Over the last few years, established Methodist churches in Old Town, Luddendenfoot & Midgley, Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd, have all joined together in the Hebden Bridge building, creating our new community of Hebden Royd Methodists.

Our Church garden is host to a flock of geese and one stop on the annual Hebden Bridge Pumpkin Festival Trail
