Welcome to Kirkby Malham Church


    It is with profound sadness that we heard of the death of Her Majesty the Queen today, 8th September. St Michael's is open as usual and you are welcome to come in for a time of quiet reflection, and to light a candle if you wish. There will be a special service of Commendation and Holy Communion on Sunday (11th Sept) at 10am, and a service of Holy Communion during the period of mourning on Sunday 18th Sept at 10am. On the 18th at 4pm there will be a service of Thanksgiving for our late Queen, when we'll be singing some of her favourite hymns. All are welcome to come and join us.

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

    We get many visitors to our beautiful church. Whether you wish to pray in peace and quiet, enjoy the tranquility of this place, or appreciate the wonderful medieval heritage, we offer you a warm welcome.

    The Archbishop of York says “However you engage with our wonderful churches, remember that they are not merely places of heritage and history, but rather vibrant and living places of worship and community." Come and find out the truth of this statement here in Kirkby Malham.

    Heritage Open Days 2022: we have a special Open Afternoon on Sunday 18th September with guided tours of the church and afternoon teas from 2pm, and a Service of Thanksgiving with Voices of Craven at 4pm. Do come and join us! See Heritage Open Days 2022

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

    Our main Sunday service is Holy Communion (Common Worship) every Sunday at 10am. On the first Sunday of each month the pattern is different, with a Family Service at 10am (non-communion) suitable for families with children, and those of any age who might prefer a more informal style of service, and an 8.30am BCP Holy Communion on those dates for those who would like to receive communion in the setting of a traditional prayer book service.

    The congregation of St Michael the Archangel is committed to serving 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.
