Welcome to Kirkby Malham Church


    St. Michael the Archangel is the Anglican parish church for Malhamdale, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is an active place of worship and a hub for the community. 

    Set in beautiful Malhamdale we get many visitors, so, whether you wish to pray in peace and quiet, enjoy the tranquility of this place, or appreciate the wonderful medieval heritage, we offer you the warmest welcome.

    In the website you will find all the information on Services and the activities of the church. You will also find information on our rich history and heritage. We welcome schools who would like to come and learn about the church and the Christian faith, and we have materials and people available to help your visit.

    St Michael's is open for visitors every day of the week, from 9am to dusk.

       Our main Sunday service is Holy Communion every Sunday at 10am.

     In 2022, from the 6th February onwards, the first Sunday of each month will be different, with a Family Service at 10am (non-communion) suitable for families with children, and those who prefer a more informal style of service, with an 8.30am BCP Holy Communion on those dates for those who would like to receive communion.

    We have an area in church for those who would prefer to sit further away from those singing, to enable everyone who attends worship to feel safe and comfortable. We would prefer those attending services to continue to observe social distancing, and to sanitise their hands on arrival and departure. The wearing of face coverings during services is currently mandatory.   

    Please also see our Facebook page, which is regularly updated, at https://www.facebook.com/KirkbyMalhamChurch  

    The congregation of St Michael the Archangel is an active Christian community and as the pandemic continues we are continuing to serve the people of Malhamdale in practical ways and through prayer and spiritual support. If you, or anyone you know needs help or support, then please don't hesitate to contact us.

    From 10th December 2021 the wearing of face coverings in places of worship has been mandatory. Please wear your mask when you visit, sanitise your hands on arrival and departure, and observe social distancing when in the building, for the safety and protection of us all. Thank you.
