Welcome to the Byland Churches website – May 2021

Our website was set up in March 2020, in response to the closure of our church buildings due to the Coronavirus pandemic, as a place for us to hear the Word of God and worship in our own homes.

Over the last year we have continued to produce regular worship online, both clergy and lay-led and currently once a month on the 4th Sunday. We warmly invite you to share in that with us. Please do also dip into the older services too, using the calendar of previous services.

We are now holding some services in person in all our church buildings again and we would love to welcome you. Details of what is happening and where can be found under the “Services in Church” tab. Restrictions remain in place, including social distancing, which means our congregation numbers are limited, especially in our smaller churches. Consequently we kindly ask that you contact the relevant Churchwarden prior to attending so they are able to check numbers – their details can be found under the “Contact” tab.

We do hope and pray that it will not now be long before we can meet and sing and share refreshment and fellowship together again!

If you would like to receive our weekly notice sheet by email to keep you updated, please see details of how to request that under the “Contact” tab.

Some of our buildings are able to open for private prayer during the week – please observe the Coronavirus safety notices at each:

Coxwold – Church open daily
Crayke – Sunday 1pm to 4pm; Thursday 9am to 1pm
Husthwaite – Sunday 12 noon to 3pm; Wednesday 3pm to 6pm

Welcome – Summer 2020

The first services in our church buildings are taking place on Sunday 12th July. Please see the notice sheet for details. If you do not receive the notice sheet, please contact Revd Liz using the details on the Contact page to find out more.

Not everyone is able to join us in church at the moment so I continue to welcome you here to this site, where we can hear the Word of God and worship in our own homes.

Some of our buildings are open for private prayer at the following times:
Brandsby – Saturday 11.30am to 12.30pm
Coxwold – Church open daily
Crayke – Sunday 1pm to 4pm; Thursday 9am to 1pm
Husthwaite – Sunday 9am to 1pm; Wednesday 2pm to 6pm
