The Benefice

The Stanwick Group of Churches St John

The Stanwick Group of Churches is a united benefice (i.e. a group of parishes all looked after by one priest or group of clergy) which comprises the Church of England parishes of Forcett, Aldbrough St. John and Melsonby in beautiful, rural North Yorkshire within the Diocese of Leeds

The picture shows Stanwick St John church which gives the benefice its name but is now a redundant church vested in the Churches Conservation Trust.

You will find a map showing the location of each church on that church's page. If you want to widen the map area to include all the churches/villages in our benefice then use the map for Stanwick St John which is located almost at the centre.

There are also links to other sites of interest including the village web-sites for some of the villages in our benefice on the Links page

Prayers and Home Visits

If there are people who you want including in prayer during a church service or would like a home communion visit, please contact a Churchwardens at the appropriate church , preferably in writing or by email. See the Contact page for details of contacting church officers by email. A note can also be given to the warden as you arrive at church.
