During the coming months, led by the Baptist Church, the Christian communities in Skipton and district are focusing on how we, in our day, know the Lord, or, in a more contemporary style #doyouknowhim?

The idea is that we reflect on the different ways in which we know the Lord and that in so doing we encourage others to be interested and to want to know more themselves. Rather than focusing our shared commitment in just the one week of Prayer for Christian Unity,

Over a period of time we try to focus as best we can on the same reflections. This will include following similar themes in our usual routines as well as doing some things together. Some of the forthcoming events are: 

Saturday, 13 January 2018     8:00am-9:30am

Skipton Baptish Church - #doyouknowhim? Prayer Breakfast

Wednesday, 17 January 2018 12:00 noon-1:00pm

Holy Trinity Church - #doyouknowhim? Lunchtime Prayer

Sunday 28 January 2018 7:30pm

St Andrew’s Methodist Church - #doyouknowhim? Launch Event led by the Bishop Nick Baines, the Anglican Bishop of Leeds. This has been timed so that it does not clash with our usual 6- 00pm Sunday evening Mass and other evening services in the town and the area.

There will be more in the coming weeks and my hope would be that we will be able to play our part in some or all of these events. If you would like to be more closely involved in the organising and planning, please contact Phil Burns at the Baptist Church: phil@skiptonbaptist.org

Prayer for Christian Unity


Lord Jesus Christ,
who said to your apostles,
'Peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you':
look not on our sins but on the faith of your Church
and grant it the peace and unity of your kingdom;
where you are alive and reign with the Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
