Grub's Up

When:

Weekly Thursday evening service, providing a short service of the word with a meal (provided by volunteers), prayer and social support. To support people to learn more about the love of God and to provide opportunities for people to make changes to their life that will enable them to leave behind some of the addictions that have afflicted their lives.

Prayer

There are a wide range of opportunities within Keighley Parish to experience, and to be part of, prayer. It is very much the root of all we do in Keighley.

Giving

Just like every home, business or charity, we need money to function. While we fundraise at specific events, we also rely on donations and gifts from our members.

Volunteering

Have you thought about joining one of our wonderful teams of volunteers? There are several opportunities to help within the parish throughout the week.
