From the Rector


Welcome to our website.

Our churches of St Mary, Haxby and St Nicholas, Wigginton form a 'benefice' - the benefice of Haxby and Wigginton.

There is also a link to our benefice facebook page on the homepage.

If you are visiting the area, live in our parishes or want to find out more about the Christian Faith you are very welcome to explore the various pages of the website to find out more about our worshipping and church life.

Public Worship

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our current Sunday and Weekday public worship is suspended, but we are delighted that we are now able to open our churches again for private prayer.   You can find the days and times when the church is open on the 'Open for Prayer' link on the homepage.

Our benefice worship each Sunday can be found under the 'Worship at Home' link and can be followed as a pre-recorded audio - see links on the homepage.

It is hoped that we can begin public worship in our churches during August.   We will let you know more details as soon as arrangements are finalised.

Baptisms (christenings) and weddings

There are also links under 'Life Events' if you want to contact us about arranging baptisms (christenings) and weddings.   Advice from the Government and the Church of England is constantly being updated about these services, so please contact me if you want to discuss arrangements about a baptism or wedding.

Our pastoral care

Please be assured of our continuing prayer and support.   Our pastoral care teams will do what they can to support you - see 'our care and support' link.

Supporting us

Our benefice vision is 'Stepping out ... with God ... with each other ... with our local community and wider world'

We have endeavoured to continue this vision through these past months, and if you feel able to support us please see our 'supporting our vision' link.

You are welcome to journey with us in our worship and witness.

The Revd Kathryn Jackson, Rector.
