Welcome + Worship + Witness



Welcome to the website of Bolton Priory. Christians began worshipping in this part of Wharfedale, North Yorkshire, in the middle of the twelfth century and still do so today. We are part of the Church of England Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales, but we are generously open and ecumenical in spirit. Whatever tradition you come from, I hope that you will find our website both useful and thought provoking.

The Priory is more than a building. We are a Christian community committed to welcome, worship, and witness, gathered round Christ in prayer, and seeking to live well with God. Our doors are open every day, and our work and worship continue through the year.

Wherever you are from, you are very welcome. We look forward to meeting you in person very soon.
