The Church of St Helen and the Holy Cross lies at the extreme eastern end of Sheriff Hutton Village. Next to the churchyard (see Churchyard Conservation Management Plan - draft) are the earthworks associated with the Norman motte and bailey castle. The ruins of the later, 14th century castle tower over the village and serve as a reminder of its strategic importance in times past. The Church contains the tomb of Richard III’s son, Edward, who died at the age of eleven at Middleham while his parents were in Nottingham. The Parish Church, despite its 12th century origins, is well suited to the needs of today’s worshippers. It is light and welcoming, has an excellent sound system and enjoys the benefits of modern kitchen and toilet facilities.
Regular Sunday services are held (see below) as well as benefice services and events.
Our previous Vicar had to resign because of ill-health so we are currently in the latter stages of an INTERREGNUM. During this time all enquiries should be addressed to the churchwardens or, for pastoral matters, to the Revd Canon Robert Law, a retired priest living locally (Tel: 01347 810 940).
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 Licencing Service at Sheriff Hutton Parish Church on Monday 8th May at 7:30pm.
