Our Story


In 1988, the Baptist churches of Barnoldswick, Earby and Salterforth covenanted to work together where able, to share resources and support one another in our efforts to spread the good news of the gospel. This relationship has deepened, and we are on the verge of amalgamating to form West Craven Baptist Church.


As we move through the transition into a new and exciting future, we have much to give thanks to God for. In this time of change and challenge for all churches, we believe that we can better serve our community as we journey together as a united church.



We have a church building in each of the three communities: 




Barnoldswick Baptist Centre
