Caring churches where all are welcome to know the peace and love of God

Parish Five Year Plan
2021 - 2026

Plans to grow and develop the work of our churches in the parish over the next five years were announced at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting on 4 May 2021.

Ascension Day Mass
Thursday13 May, 19.00

We will be holding a joint online service with St Aidan's church, to celebrate Ascension Day. All are welcome to attend.

Service Update

We are planning to open our churches for worship from Sunday, 16 May.


As current restrictions are still in place, our services will continue in 'Covid' format, which means social distancing still applies, our services will be slightly shorter than usual, and we are not singing in church. Face masks will also be required inside the church and we will be using a booking system for those wishing to attend a service.

Christian Aid Week

10 - 16 May, 2021

In previous years our Parish has collected for Christian Aid during this week via envelope giving. Sadly this year, due to the present Covid-19 situation, this will not be possible.


However, it’s important that the vital work of Christian Aid still receives income and we would encourage you to go visit their website and consider how you can help.


Pause for Thought

With the Reverend Angela Hannafin

Good news indeed


It’s not quite barbeque weather yet, but here in Yorkshire, the sun has been shining, the daffodils are blooming and there are green shoots on the trees and shrubs in both villages. Spring is here, bringing with it signs of hope.  After all we’ve been through with the pandemic, these positive signs from nature are so life-giving.


Village News Magazine

The April - May 21 edition of our online Village News magazine is now available.

The magazine combines a mix of articles of general interest with church news and information. This edition welcomes spring and celebrates all the new life that it brings with it. It also focuses on our planet and the need for mankind to protect our environment and the natural world on which we rely.

Our Environmental Policy

Our planet is facing a dramatic change in climate, which according to scientists the world over is a result of human action over the last 150 years, predominantly through the burning of fossil fuels to create energy.


As Christians we have a responsibility to take care of God's creation and the Parish Environmental Policy declares our commitment to do just that.
