The Church seeks to proclaim the Good news of Jesus, nurture and support Christians, and promote unity and service among the Christians of Nidderdale. One of the ways we do this is to provide a Christian witness to people. There are many events that we offer, you are warmly invited to join us as we witness to God's living presence in the Dale.
Sometimes we need to get away or to rest from our busyness in order to achieve the kind of peace that leads to a deeper communion with God.
As part of our mission action plan, The United Parish of Upper Nidderdale seeks to provide quarterly Quiet Afternoons, an opportunity to recharge your spiritual batteries within the tranquil surroundings of Fishpond Wood, Bewerley.

The Upper Nidderdale Food Bank
A heart on fire for God is one which supports and loves those on the fringe, struggling, and in need of grace. It is really important to the Church in the Dale to respond to situations of crisis. We are especially aware of those in our area who struggle to put food on their tables, because of this we regularly collect food either for our local Food Bank or for the Harrogate Homeless Project.
If you would like to donate food please donate tinned food (vegetables, meat or fish), rice, pasta, juice, biscuits, tea and coffee, cereals, tinned sponge puddings, rice pudding, instant mash potatoes, milk (UHT or powdered), and toiletries. Please do not include fresh food or baked beans in your donation. Receptacles for donations are in St Cuthbert’s Church, Pateley Bridge (all week during daylight hours) for the Food Bank, Holy Trinity Dacre Banks (all week during daylight hours) and Christ Church Darley (Service times only) for the Harrogate Homeless Project.
