Aldbrough St John: St Paul

We are currently in interregnum since the departure of Revd Camilla Campling-Denton. Each of the three parish churches is holding one Holy Communion service a month with a visiting priest and there is also a Family Servie of the Word usually on the first Sunday led by Lay Worship Leader, Ruth Abbey. at Melsonby. If notonthe first Sunday it will be on the third Sunday.

The first question most people ask about the church of St Paul is "Why is it dedicated to St Paul when the village is called Aldbrough St John?". The reason is the somewhat prosaic one that the Post Office needed a means of distinguishing between our Aldbrough and Aldborough near Boroughbridge and Aldbrough in the East Riding. At that time the village was within the ancient parish of St John at Stanwick and so the name of the then parish church was added. St Paul's only became the parish church in 1990 when St John's was declared redundant.

The parish of Aldbrough 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(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Leeds’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
