This Civic Service was to dedicate our newly re-imagined and lovingly restored building and bless it for God’s purposes here in Otley. The congregation joined with local community and church leaders for this unique and historic event.
The preacher was The Rt. Revd. Nick Baines (Bishop of Leeds, our Diocesan Bishop). Listen to his talk and the readings by following the link below:-

Otley Parish Church in West Yorkshire, England completed a project to refurbish the Grade I listed, medieval building and make it more suitable for the needs of congregation and local community. The work took place between June 2015 and February 2016. This 15 minute video of presentation slides (no audio) shows the background to the work, its aims, detail of the changes, photos of the work being done, some “before” and “after” images and the church’s vision for the future.
