Amotherby: St Helen

Our benefice is currently in a vacancy. Please contact the church wardens for enquiries or visit our website for more information. Our website calendar will be updated with our upcoming services. 

During this period of vacancy we are being very well supported by other members of the Retired Clergy and Laity who regularly hold services for us across the Street Parishes Benefice.  This has enabled us to hold a weekly Eucharist and continue with family services across the whole area.

We continue to be able to offer Weddings and Baptism.

Funeral and Memorial Services.

Please contact the Churchwardens for further information 

St Helens Church is open daily from 9.00am - 4.00 pm

St Helens Church Restoration appeal has now raised its target amount of £50000.

We are very happy to be able to start restoration work at the beginning of November 2023.  The church has been granted permission for temporary closure from 1 November 2023  until 28 February 2024.  We expect that the planned works will take no longer than three months.  During the months of November and December, we will be holding our monthly Eucharist at All Saints Church on the same 4th Sunday of the month.  We hope you will come and join us in what is our beautiful Anglo Saxon mother church at Appleton le Street.

* Please note we will still hold our usual Remembrance Service in St Helens Churchyard at the War Memorial on 12 November at 10.45.  This will be an outside service so please bring warm clothing.  All welcome. *
