Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. We have recently been able to open some of our churches for personal prayer and there is a Eucharist for the Benefice each Sunday at 10.30 am at St Hilda’s Church in Ampleforth. Our desire to share the Christian hope and the experience of love that we have come to know in Christ continues to inform and inspire all that we do as a Christian community.

I hope you find it easy to use our Sunday Worship service material given here each week, complete with audio and hymns. I celebrate the Eucharist on behalf of our parishes every Sunday and this is shown on our YouTube channel.  Our ministry to schools, young people and their families, is important to us. A new Collective Worship video is uploaded to our YouTube channel every Thursday, and our Ampleforth Youth Church Facebook page is regularly updated with news and activities.

I pray that you are well and can find many things to give thanks to God for each day. Please do join us in worship if you can. I also send out a weekly letter, along with the Sunday Bible readings, a sermon and any benefice news. Get in touch if you would like to receive this by email. If would like to know more about the Christian faith and our ministry and mission in our parishes, please get in touch:


The Lord bless you, make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you, and give you his peace.
