Welcome to the Byland Churches website – October 2022

A Prayer for King Charles III

About us

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.

Worship online, both clergy and lay-led, has been produced regularly up to June 2021 and is still available to revisit or watch for the first time by scrolling through or via the calendar. We warmly invite you to share in that with us.

We would love to welcome you in person to our worship across the Benefice churches and details of what is happening and where can be found under the “Services in Church” tab.

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.

All of our buildings (apart from Brandsby) are open every day and we welcome you to visit.

With blessings from the Byland Churches



Welcome – Summer 2020

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.

Coxwold – Church open daily
