A small 12th century church serving a small rural community.
For a short history of this attractive and unusual church please click on our Welcome Leaflet (in the text box on the right).
Marton Church is well cared for and is open daily as a haven for quiet meditation and spiritual refreshment.
A board at the gate invites passers-by to "Find Peace and Tranquility within".
Services in the CelticTradition are held twice a month at 6pm*:
- 1st Sunday: A Celtic Communion
- 3rd Sunday: A Reflective Meditative Service in the Celtic Tradition
(*Please check the calendar of events for any seasonal changes: for example, EASTER SUNDAY will be a COMMUNION SERVICE.)
Car parking is available in the field to the West of the churchyard.
The Church is one of five in the Forest of Galtres Benefice: Sheriff Hutton, Sutton, Stillington, Farlington & Marton.
The evening services at Marton attract a congregation from these local villages, and further afield.
Sadly our previous Vicar, the Rev Chris Ellis, retired last year following ill health.
The churches in the Forest of Galtres Benefice are pleased to confirm the appointment of our new Vicar, the Reverend Stephen Whiting.
He will be formally welcomed at a Licensing Service at Sheriff Hutton Parish Church on Monday 8th May at 7:30pm.
Until this date, please contact the churchwarden for more information about the church or services.
For pastoral matters, please contact our local retired priest: The Revd Canon Robert Law (01347 810940) who has acted as Priest-in-Charge during our Interregnum.
Rev Stephen Whiting will be leading the evening service at Marton at 6pm on Sunday 21st May.
