About Us
Who we are

OCRH was founded in 2004 by the Anglican churches in Otley Deanery, part of the then Diocese of Bradford. From that original partnership we have developed links with the local Methodist circuit as well as supporting a variety of churches across the Diocese of Leeds. We  registered as an independent charity in 2016 and are managed by a board of trustees.

Staff Team

Mandy is employed by the Trustees to manage The Hub and all its work.

There is a Board of Trustees, drawn from supporting churches, who are responsible for governance and meet regularly to oversee the work.

Props Team and Makers

Over the years we have been really blessed by a group of excellent props people. They have handcrafted all of our Open the Book costumes and props and many of our other storytelling resources. If you would like to join our props team please do get in touch
