About Us

We are a warm and welcoming church community, meeting each Sunday at 8.30am for Holy Communion. We are currently a small and committed congregation, very happy to welcome new members, those looking or seeking something, or one-off visitors - all welcome! 

We are part of Nether with Upper Poppleton parish and, as such, have many joint events and services with All Saints' in Upper Poppleton. Both Poppleton churches share their Vicar, Rev'd. Simon Biddlestone, with Holy Redeemer church in Acomb. In addition to our Sunday Communion services at 8.30am, we have weekly Wednesday Communion services at 10.30am - please email [email protected] for further information. 

St. Everilda's Church is right at the end of Church Lane, Nether Poppleton. It is a lovely gem of a church, very popular for weddings due to its location and natural beauty. The stained glass in the eastern window is of late 13th Century and early 14th Century. There are some monumental effigies in the church to members of Archbishop Hutton's family, some of whom resided in Poppleton. But it also has some modern features, such as under seat heating - most welcome on a frosty morning! - and a new kitchen and toilet extension, added in 2014. If you are curious, why not come along and see for yourself?
