Illingworth Methodist Church is a growing church with 70 members which according to the minister "has always had a very strong beating heart" and remains keyed into the neighbouring community.

Since the opening of the new building 10 years ago Illingworth Moor has grown and developed in its worship, discipleship and spirituality and continues to engage with the local community in many different kinds of ways. We are a worshiping community who are passionate about Jesus and passionate about those who live around us coming to know Jesus for themselves.

The current Minister Rev Paul Welch said, "Around the Church and its building there is a real buzz, which enables people to engage with a living faith that is exciting and relevant to the local community."

The building has disabled access and toilet facilities, and a loop system for hearing aid users.
