Church of England Diocese of York Stillington

About Us

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

Services are currently be held in church on the first and third Sunday in the month at 10.0 am.

Anti-covid precautions are in place and face coverings must be worn.

The church is open for private prayer on a Wednesday from 2.0 to 4.0 pm and on a Sunday from 10.0 am to 12 noon if there is no service.

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.  

We are part of the Forest of Galtres Benefice so we share our vicar, the Revd Steve Whiting, with the four other churches of the Benefice. He may be contacted on 01347 810251.
