About Us

Pickering’s a bustling Market Town at the foothills of the North York Moors. The famous North York Moors Steam Railway runs from Pickering to Whitby; dramatic Pickering Castle is nearby, and the church, at the top of Market Place, is at the heart of it all.

The Parish Church is a truly wonderful building, well-loved and well-used by the local community and a real focal point in Ryedale. A large and active congregation meet here to pray, study and worship God, day by day, week by week.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community, and hope that you will enjoy the architecture of the building, the famous medieval wall-paintings which line its walls, and above all the peacefulness of the place and the space to spend time with God.
