The Church of St Helen and the Holy Cross lies at the extreme eastern end of Sheriff Hutton Village. Next to the churchyard 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.
The church is part of the Forest of Galtres Benefice in the care of the Revd Chris Ellis, whose vicarage is at Sutton-on-the-Forest (Tel: 01347 810251).
Regular Sunday services are held (see below) as well as benefice services and events.
