St Andrew

Greetings and welcome!

There has been a church here since the 13th Century and the present building, completed in 1899 is the third church.

The Archbishops of York have their residence and offices in the parish and they have long had close association with their local church.

You will see there is a great deal going on. We value the opportunity to work with local children and young people through links with the local schools and our own activities, but everyone matters to us. We are here for you, too.
