• 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 rules we may once more hold services in our churches, albeit with some restrictions. Some 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 alternate Sundays 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! 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!


    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
    Rector of the Harton Benefice

    For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.
    Romans 8:14-16
