Set in the shadow of Easby Abbey, St. Agatha's is famous for its 13th century wall paintings, probably the finest in North Yorkshire. There is a replica of the Easby Cross, the original now in the Victoria & Albert Museum, London is described by Pevsner as"the finest piece of Anglo Saxon sculpture in the county".
A wonderful place to worship!! . St Agatha was founded on a site that has been a holy place for centuries and there is a real sense of God’s presence in our well-maintained church. The marvellous Medieval wall paintings take your breath away!
The pattern of services involves some additional variety because we encourage Baptisms as part of our regular Sunday service. We use a modern form of words - Common Worship, (very much 21st century) while still retaining a traditional style. We adjust our service time on those Baptism Sundays to 3.15pm to make it more convenient for young families. Easby is becoming increasingly popular as a wedding venue; it has a seating capacity of more than 150. (see ‘ on our website for more information).
The church has level access and is just a short distance from the nearby small public car park.
