About us

Our Mission:

To be a family of Christian people who love and serve God 

within the life of the church and local community.


We are a growing and enthusiastic church family offering a variety of worship styles from fairly traditional to more relaxed and informal. 

Take a look at ‘SERVICES’ for more details.

The three churches in the Parish are:

• St Thomas’ –  A small mission church in the nearby village of Gristhorpe
• St Oswald’s – A 12th Century parish church
• St John’s     – A Victorian church, part converted into St John’s Parish Centre

Alongside the vicar we have a team of retired clergy and lay people working in the local community, in the schools, through pastoral visiting, prayer and healing groups.

Through our facilities at St John’s Centre, we have a variety of other community activities such as a Baby and Toddler Group, Community Lunches,

Friendship Teas and Charity events.
