• Welcome to
    The Benefice of Harton
    Eight parishes make up our Benefice and all have a commitment to work together as a worshipping community. Just outside York and nestling at the foot of the Howardian Hills, our ten Churches and fourteen villages are usually delightful places to visit and explore. Check out the 'Our Churches' tab for an online tour of the churches.

    In line with current Covid-19 pandemic restrictions no services are being held in our churches. Some church buildings are open at times for personal prayer - see Latest Articles - Covid-19 Guidance for more information.

    However we offer our usual warm welcome to all for
    Morning Worship Online each Sunday at 10am and to
    'Conversation at 10' on Wednesday mornings when we meet online to discuss a wide range of topics.
    See the Calendar for more details.

    Messy Church also continues online, though the 'mess' may be in your home rather the village hall! See the monthly   newsletter on our Children and Youth page for information.


    On this website you can also find links to other online services and resources available in our Southern Ryedale Deanery, the Diocese of York and the Church of England.

    Remember - though we may not shake you by the hand, we look forward to offering you our warmest welcome online

    Yours in Christ

    Revd Chris Wingfield

    As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, called Peter, and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake—for they were fishermen. 'Come,follow me,' he said, 'and I will send you out to fish for people.’ At once they left their nets and followed him. (Matthew 4:18-20)
    May we be ready to answer the call, follow Jesus and spread the good news to others.
