Church of England Diocese of York Shipton with Overton

About Us

The rector for our parish and the benefice is Rev. Malcolm Wainwright and the Associate Priest is Rev. Trevor Gant. We have weekly Sunday services and aim to give visitors a warm welcome.. 

The church of the Holy Evangelists, Shipton by Beningbrough, built in 1849 is a very imposing Victorian building easily visible from the A19 road.

There is a strong link between the church and the Forest of Galtres Church of England/Methodist primary school in Shipton. Pupils from the school  visit the church and attend special church services and Anglican and Methodists regularly take school assemblies and are represented on the Governing body. We share with them in taking an afternoon service for the nearby St. Catherine`s Home for the elderly..

You are warmly invited to visit our church and the village and we look forward to seeing you soon.
