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 during the pandemic

The Church community continues to worship at home in many different ways: following Worship at Home services provided by our Minister and the Vine; listening to services on radio or TV; attending live broadcast or Zoom services hosted by other Churches.
Our Minister hosts a Sunday Evening zoom service at 6pm which may be in the style of Taize, Celtic Evening Worship, reflection and discussion. Contact the Church if you would like to join in. Email Hebden Royd Methodist Church (
There is always a warm welcome for all who worship with us.

Virtual Sunday Club

Our small but enthusiastic Sunday Club had gone virtual with young people from Blackshaw Head.
We enjoy having a bit of a catch up and a chat about what we have been up to before moving on to a Bible story followed by simple games or craft and a closing prayer.
It is always a fun session that keeps us feeling connected to each other and God.

Monday Fellowship Group

This is a group open to all for friendly worship, discussion, bible study, prayer, chat and refreshments. It is led by group members now held via Zoom.

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.
