About Us

Building.

Described by Pevsner as the most complete Norman church in the East Riding with Norman nave, transepts, lower part of tower  and magnificent crossing. Four doors with arch decoration one with several orders. Middle of tower and south transept window 13th century. Chancel, west window and upper tower Perpendicular. The most detailed description of this church is in Vol. XXI of the Yorkshire Archæological Journal, 1910, by the architect John Bilson (available in Beverley Library).

 Some damaged and eroded masonry in the door arches and south transept plinth has recently (2012) been  replaced.

Services.

We have a variety of services on Sunday mornings, mainly derived from Common Worship but some from the BCP. All include Communion. Children are encouraged at all services and on first Sundays in the month there are Sunday School activities during the Family Communion service. We have Compline on the Sunday evenings in Lent and occasional services for special occasions. Also occasional musical events. The congregation is very welcome to remain after Sunday morning services for refreshments.

Newbald Church Rooms.

The Newbald Church Rooms, originally the Old School, were salvaged and renovated by a dedicated group of parents in 2002  to offer fun, friendship and development for the youngsters of Newbald and surrounding villages.   

Children between the ages of 4 and 16 meet at three different club sessions during the week.  Supervised by staff and volunteers the children have been able to get involved in a diverse range of activities, such as cookery and film nights, trips out, football, street dancing, organising fundraising events and taking part in the Youth Council. An important ethos of the Rooms is that children should be allowed to play within the safe environment of the club. The children also have, if  they need, a safe haven from other difficulties and problems they may be experiencing elsewhere.  

All children are welcome to come along and join in the fun.
