The Parish Church of St Nicholas stands at the heart of the Village today as it has since the 12th century. 

Services are held on most Sundays and a weekly prayer meeting is held.

Todays congregation offers a warm welcome to visitors wishing to share in their worship.

The church was extended in the 15th century and largely rebuilt in 1840. The result is a light and airy interior, despite the box pews.  It has recently again been refurbished.  There are memorials to the Croft family, of the former Stillington Hall, and a previous vicar was Lawrence Sterne, of Tristram Shandy fame.  Some of the furniture is by Robert 'mouseman' Thomson of Kilburn.  The church is open daily during daylight hours.

We are part of the Forest of Galtres Benefice so we share our vicar with the four other churches of the Benefice.

We are pleased to announce that our new Priest-in-Charge, the Revd Stephen Whiting is now in post.

He may be contacted on 01347 810251.

Please note: As from September the starting time of the usual morning services will be 9.15 instead of 9.30.
