About Us

We are one church of six in the new Benefice of Whorlton in Cleveland, which was established in December 2019 to bring us together with Hutton Rudby, Middleton, Crathorne, Carlton, Faceby and Potto.  Swainby and Potto comprise the ancient Parish of 'Whorlton'

Revd Dr Robert Opala is our rector and we are fortunate to also have a share in the talents of Revd David Sudron, House for Duty Assistant Priest for the Benefice.

We look forward to welcoming visitors and parish residents, whatever their age, to our services in Holy Cross and the other churches of the Benefice.
