A warm welcome awaits you at St Thomas a Becket church in the lovely village of Hampsthwaite. 

The vicar, Reverend Suzy McCarter can be contacted by phone on 01423 772638 or by e-mail at [email protected] Please note her day off is Tuesday.

Services are held in Hampsthwaite on the first three Sundays of every month and on the fourth and, where they occur, fifth Sundays we meet with the congregations of the other three churches in our Benefice; Killinghall, Birstwith and Felliscliffe, for joint worship. The venues for these Benefice services are on a rotational basis and details can be found by clicking on the "visit page" below and going to our calendar.

The parish of Hampsthwaite is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer: Josephine Shepherd. The Diocese of Leeds's safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advise our Parish Safeguarding Officer.

If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
