Welcome to Gracious Street Methodist Church.

We are an active and friendly family church at the heart of the Knaresborough community.

Our Sunday services are at 10:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. and a warm welcome will await you.


Whilst our building is currently closed our Church is very much open and active in the community. If you would like to support our work in reaching out to the vulnerable and isolated at this challenging time you can do so through our Just Giving page.

You can view the Services for Sunday 29th March on our Recorded Sermons page here.

A Covid-19 Message from Rev. Gordon Hay


The Methodist Church in Britain has announced that all services should be suspended for the time being in line with government guidance.

We are also therefore suspending all other activities, including The Bridge and Resurrected Bites but with the exception of Noahs Ark, that take place at the Church or in the Centre on Gracious Street.

You can join live morning prayers at 8 a.m. Monday to Saturday on the Nidd Valley Circuit facebook page here https://www.facebook.com/pg/NiddValley/ or listen later

We are still contactable and available if you need us.
