About Us

St Mary Magdalene's Church, Hayton was built in 1780 on the site of an earlier medieval church. There is a side gallery, and the chancel has been opened up. The nave of the church retains its pews. 

Hayton Church is one of the ten churches in the Eden, Gelt and Irthing Team Ministry. In the the north the parishes of Brampton, Irthington, Crosby and Scaleby are served by the Team Rector Rev Cannon Trisha Rogers. To the south six parishes of Hayton, Talkin, Farlam, Castle Carrock, Cumwhitton and Cumrew are served by the Revd Cannon Edward Johnsen, the Team Vicar. The parish of Hayton includes the villages of Fenton, How Mill, Faugh, and the settlement at Edmund Castle.

The Church School next door to the Church has about 160 children and we work very closely together.

Services are at 11am every Sunday. Most services are Eucharists (Holy Communion). For further details including information about the monthly youth groups in Brampton led by Ruth Hutchinson our Network Youth Church Leader, see the News and Notices tab. 

On a Monday morning once a month a prayer group meets in the homes of parishioners. Contact Edward the vicar for further info.
