• 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 Our Churches for an online tour of the churches.
    Please check the Latest Articles page for updates from the Deanery Planning Team about proposals the future of worship in our Southern Ryedale Deanery. Do please feed back your comments to Gillian, our representative on this group.

    Thank you!


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

    Yours in Christ
