Church of England Diocese of York Long Riston

About Us

Long Riston Parish Church is dedicated to St Margaret of Antioch. There is a varied collection of 19th and 20th century stained glass, the latest addition marking the Millennium.

The building stands in the middle of a large churchyard. Its situation limits the range of facilities we are able to offer. There is a good road to the churchyard gate, you then walk on our new church path. Please be aware of rabbit holes within the church grounds.

As a church we are proud to be associated with our local village school, Riston Church of England Primary School. School services and events in church are always lively occasions.

Our Sunday services attract people of all ages. Children are encouraged to attend and take part. The atmosphere is relaxed but we take the dignity of worship seriously.

 We serve hot and cold drinks after some services. We are always pleased to see, welcome and learn about visitors.
