Welcome to the website of the Parish of Lower Wharfe. The churches in the parish include The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Boston Spa, All Saints’ Bramham and St. Peter’s Walton. Together with the parish of All Saints’ Thorp Arch, we comprise the Benefice of Bramham, in the Diocese of York. We also work closely with St Luke's, Clifford, which is a separate Parish. You will find a warm welcome at any of our churches and we always look forward to greeting newcomers to any of our services or events. If you have recently moved into the area the clergy are always available to visit.
