The Christians in Garsdale realise that we don't actually need all these
buildings, but they all have historic value, so we wish to keep
them open as long as we can afford to do so.  
We have negligible differences in doctrine,
and just minor differences in our preferred mode of worship.
We normally share the first three services in each month:
the first Sunday at St John's at 10 a.m.
the second Sunday at Low Smithy at 2 p.m.
and the third Sunday at Garsdale Street at 6:30 p.m.
We are committed to working together in Garsdale
as part of the new Western Dales Mission Community.

The times of normal Sunday services are:

10 a.m. at St John's (first and fourth Sundays)

2:00 p.m. at Low Smithy (second and fourth Sundays)

6:30 p.m. at Garsdale Street (third and fourth Sundays)

The first of Garsdale's three Carol Services will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, December 2nd at Hawes Junction.
This will be led by "Askrigg Ladies Singing for Pleasure" and will be followed by supper.

Garsdale Street Carol Service is at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 10th.

St John's Carol Service is at 7 p.m. on Monday, December 18th.

The three carol services are all very different, and everyone is welcome to come to all three.

St John's church is always open, and the chapels are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.  

The Churches Trust for Cumbria leaflet: "Railways & Religion in the Western Dales" is available in the chapels.

Lizzie with lambRose
We are thinking of Elizabeth's family and friends, and praying for them,
after her tragic death on April 29th 2011.
    We will never forget you, Lizzie.
When something has enriched your life, and when its melody lingers on in your heart,
is it unfinished, or is it endless?

At present, this website is just in an experimental stage. Suggestions for improvement will be appreciated.

We no longer hold outdoor services, but perhaps we could bring back the tradition?  Does anyone have any suggestions?
