About Us


St. Mary's Church is the Church of England Parish Church of Haxby.   It is part of the United Benefice of Haxby and Wigginton.   For our sister church of St. Nicholas, Wigginton, please go to the relevant 'A Church Near You' page.    You can also find out more details about both churches by clicking on the link to the Benefice website on the home page.

The Benefice is situated some 4 miles (6.4 km) north of the ancient city of York, England, and our parishes serve a population of around 13,000 people.   We are part of the Church of England deanery of York, within the diocese of York.   Our bishop is the Archbishop of York.

United in our mission the two parishes of Haxby and Wigginton also rejoice in being individual and distinctive in what each has offer as churches.

We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to come and worship with us, to journey with us and join us in our mission, or simply come along and see what we have to offer.   Children and Young People are very welcome.
