Otley Parish Church
Otley Parish Church has been the heart of Otley for 1000
years and more.
Our vision is to be an open, welcoming and supportive
community of Christians who encourage one another in making Christ
known in Otley and beyond. We recognise everyone as a child of God, so
there is "a place for everyone with Christ at the centre." We are
enriched by different traditions of faith. We have much to proclaim and
we have much to learn. Our openness and our readiness to learn stem
from our deep commitment to Christ and to the world he came to save.
Otley Parish Church is like a garden, full of young and
old plants growing together, with different colours, shapes, fruits and
flowers, flowering and fading, growing and dying. It is hard work but a
rewarding place to be, full of joy and rest.
We believe passionately in the power of prayer and have
many groups of people, such as Prayer Warriors and a Prayer Chain, who
intercede regularly for our Church community, the town of Otley and the
wider world. If you are in need of prayer for a particular person or
area of your life please hang your request on the prayer tree just
inside the north door.
Most people today believe in God - but what sort of God?
Where does Jesus fit in? What about the Bible? How do we pray? What
about suffering? As well as worshipping in Church, we meet together in
smaller groups to support each other in our Faith and in our day to day
lives. We don’t have all the answers but we are on a journey of
discovery - growing to know God and what it means to follow Jesus
Christ in the 21st century. Do join us.
We work together with the other Christian Churches
through Churches Together in Otley.
