Church of England Diocese of York Topcliffe

About Us

Welcome to the website for St Columba’s, the parish church of Topcliffe, near Thirsk.

The Parish is part of the Benefice of Topcliffe, Baldersby with Dishforth, Dalton and Skipton on Swale. We are currently in Vacancy since the retirement of our Vicar Revd Susanne Jukes. During this period we are served by our Area Dean, Revd Fiona Mayer-Jones, our Churchwarden Chris Hewlett, and the PCC.

Full details of the activities in the Benefice can be found by going to the websites for the other churches, through the parish magazine Cross Talk, or by looking on the noticeboard at church.

We are a small congregation that usually meets every week and we generally have a variety of services throughout the month, details of which can be found under “Services and Events” on this website. During the Coronavirus pandemic it has not been possible to hold all our usual services, but whenever possible we have resumed regular acts of worship, and details of these can be found in the "News and notices" section of the website. Please note that plans may be altered at short notice as Covid-19 regulations change.

You would be most welcome to attend any of our services and if you require any more information, please use the “Get in Touch” section of this website. If planning to come do check this website first or contact John Phillips (01845 577034) to ensure the event is going ahead as planned.  It would be lovely to hear from you or to see you at one of our services.
