Welcome to City Valley Shipley

City Valley Shipley is a church family for all ages and all walks of life. We want to make Jesus known in our local communities across North Bradford. 

We are a church family who walk with each other through the ups and downs of life, and where we recognise everyone’s unique value and contribution. 

We are learning what it is to be disciples of Jesus, and encouraging each other to follow Him in all that He calls us to. And we want to go and tell those around us about Jesus’s good news, and our prayer is we will see many people decide to follow Him.

You are so welcome to join us on this journey!

Sunday Mornings

We meet 10am-12pm every Sunday morning at Shipley C of E Primary School, BD18 2PT. We would love to see you there!

The entrance is via the red gates on Back Birklands Road, at the very end of Castle Road nearest the school. There is free on street parking on Sundays on the surrounding roads. If you have accessibility needs you are welcome to park in the school playground - please speak to one of our welcome team on the gate when you arrive.

What to expect

We usually start with a lively time of worship for all ages, followed by teaching from the Bible.  We believe God speaks to all of us, and we love being encouraged by contributions from anyone who wants to share. Afterwards, there is plenty of time to catch up over tea and coffee.

We love having lots of children and youth in our church family. Every fortnight the children and youth aged 3-16 have their own sessions after worship. They are led by our wonderful children and youth teams and are a fun-filled place to learn about God and hear Him speak. On the other Sundays there is a facilitated time for children with their parents. There is a parent and baby/toddler room for our under 3s.


There is a step free entrance and an accessible toilet available.

Find out about what else we have going on in our Coming up section below. (Very occasionally dates, times and locations may change, please see the events page for specific dates).

Prayer Groups

We believe that prayer is an intergral part of our Christian lives.

We have small prayer groups that meet once a week to pray together for an hour. We would love everyone who is part of City Valley Shipley to join one of these groups.

We find that these groups also become a place of sharing life together, as we pray for each other, our communities, and all that God has put on our heart. Please get in touch if you would like to join a prayer group.
