St Wilfrid Harrogate is a working parish church, open to the public every day. Daily services from Sunday to Friday are offered in a distinctive Anglo-Catholic style within the Church of England. The Parish is part of the Society of Ss Wilfrid and Hilda, and the Bishop of Wakefield provides episcopal care. This is more than just a beautiful building. It is a vibrant, living sign of God’s presence with us and a rich community of people seeking an authentic Christian path through the ups and downs of daily life.
The Parish Mass is celebrated at 10am on Sunday and mass is celebrated at 6pm Monday to Friday and also at 11am on Wednesdays. All services are open for public attendance and all people are very welcome to join us. Orders of service can be downloaded from the links below.
All services are also live-streamed at: https://www.facebook.com/SaintWilfrid

We are a parish which takes Safeguarding seriously. You can read more about this at: http://www.stwilfrid.org/support/safeguarding/ or you can download our SWH 2022 Safeguarding Poster, with contact details. The poster is also available opposite as an image. We are committed to following the Church of England’s best practice. So for example, all our volunteers who work with children or vulnerable adults undertake the required checks and training. And if your child attends Young Wilf’s – our Sunday school – then we’ll also ask you to complete a registration form so we have the best information at hand to help care for your child.
We invite you to visit us, a warm welcome awaits.

“27 April 1987 – In a break from filming Dinner at Noon at the Crown Hotel, I walk across to St Wilfrid’s, which I cycled over from Leeds to see forty years ago…I find it’s by Temple Moore, Early English cathedral architecture miniaturised – tiny clerestory passages, sweeping steps up to the organ, and lots of Arts & Craft rood-loftery stuff which I just about liked then but which looks much nicer now. Modern I thought this church was once. Now it’s antique, the pewter-coloured door bound in iron and as rutted and heavy as its medieval model…”.Alan Bennett, Writing Home
“I like to feel part of a friendly community and really enjoy the sense of calm that going to church offers. St Wilfrid’s is the friendliest church we have ever come across – some truly wonderful people in the congregation and they have made us feel very welcome since we started going a couple of years ago.”Dan, age 40
