Who we are

Loving Jesus. Growing together.
Reaching Yorkshire and the nations

Welcome to City Valley Chucrh! We are a lively church family who Love Jesus and are excited about what He is doing. We believe that our relationship with Him changes our lives and impacts the lives of those around us.

We are one church in three locations - we currently meet in Shipley and in the Aire Valley on a Sunday morning, with a group growing in Bradford City Centre.

We care about our streets, neighborhoods and towns and want to make the name of Jesus known in Bradford and along the Aire and Wharf valleys. This is why we are called City Valley Church.

Below, we have put some information together that will help you get to know more about us.
