Due to Coronavirus all our services have been suspended. Please follow us on Facebook for daily and Sunday prayers and reflections. The feed is on our home page. 

We offer a range of worship opportunities throughout the Benefice within the mainstream Anglican tradition. Our intention is that all our services should be accessible and friendly and particularly welcome children, visitors and holiday makers. Most of our services use Common Worship liturgy, although there are services which follow the Book of Common Prayer. 

Our standard Sunday pattern of worship is below but please take a look at our calendar for up to date service details or if you want to join us for  a festival or special occasion such as Easter or Christmas. Apart from our Sunday services there is a mid-week service in All Saints Slingsby on a Wednesday morning at 9.30am which alternates between a lay-led Morning Prayer and a Eucharist.

Life Events

Across the generations the Church has been a focal point for key moments in people’s lives new life, promises of love and the loss of loved ones. We would like to walk with you through these key moments and be a source of ongoing support in life and faith.

The Church of England has a range of resources on their website to walk you through Baptism (Christening) promises, Wedding plans and Funeral arrangements. There is also information on continuing your faith journey through Confirmation and Adult Baptism.

You may find the Church of England Parish Map tool useful to see where our parish boundaries lie, especially for Weddings.

Please contact the Rector if you would like to arrange any of these services.
