Dan's DenDan's Den

Dan's Den at Christchurch, Ilkley has now been open for three and a half years. During that time we have hosted countless children with their mums, dads, grandparents, nannies, childminders, aunts, uncles and family friends.

Visitors to Dan's Den get a warm welcome from staff and volunteers. Dan's Den employs an Outreach Worker who mingles with the families in the space, providing adult conversation, a listening ear for troubles, prayer and signposting for those in crisis. The cafe provides a range of refreshments including home prepared light meals and cake.

Dan's Den has resulted in some new initiatives in Christchurch. Firstly, we have started a Sunday afternoon family friendly service using the space to provide a welcome and refreshments. We have also started a monthly service for families who have children with special needs. And, following a conversation with a member of staff, we provide a twice yearly Baby Loss service to commemorate the loss of a baby in pregnancy or infancy.  

Dan's Den at Christchurch is open 9.30 am - 5 pm Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and 9.30 am - 1 pm on Tuesday and Saturday. See our website for more details: https://www.dansdenilkley.co.uk

Acting in God's LoveChristian Witness in a Multi-Religious World

Our Deputy Chair, Revd Dr Barbara Glasson, has been involved in putting together a new booklet, ‘Acting in God’s Love: Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World’. This practical theological resource uses the document 'Christian Witness in a Multi-Religious World: Recommendations for Conduct' produced by the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA). It aims to help you gain a practical understanding towards application of the guidelines, provide a wider perspective of the UK context and develop deeper theological reflection on interfaith engagement. 

Copies of the booklet can be downloaded from the Churches Together in Britain & Ireland website.
