• 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 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 rules we may once more hold services in our churches, albeit with some restrictions. Most church buildings are also open at times for personal prayer - see Latest Articles - Covid-19 Guidance for more information and find details of all services in the Calendar.


    We offer our usual warm welcome to all for
    Morning Worship Online on one Sunday each month at 10am
    'Conversation at 10' has moved from Wednesday to Friday mornings. We welcome some invited guests to share their story with us.
    See the Calendar for more details.

    Messy Church is back 'live'! Go to the Children and Youth page to read the monthly Newsletter and discover the latest about our Messy Allotment project.


    See the Resources page for links to Pray One For Me and other online resources available in our Southern Ryedale Deanery, the Diocese of York and the Church of England.

    With the closure of our church buildings we have not been able to receive all the gifts that we usually would. So we really appreciate your help now.  Please click on the button to make a donation - just once, or perhaps you could you give a regular amount?
    Thank you!


    We look forward to offering you our warmest welcome - online or in person

    Yours in Christ

    Revd Chris Wingfield
    Rector of the Harton Benefice
    Area Dean, Southern Ryedale
