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.

Church Services in November and December

We are pleased that we can resume church worship after the current period of lockdown ends on 2nd December.   

As our area is in 'Tier 2' Covid-19 restrictions still apply.   We shall resume the system of applying for places to attend church services.

If you are unable to attend church we will still offer our online (audio) service.

Covid-19 Restrictions - 'Hands, Face, Space'

Please continue to observe the required social distancing rules.   Face masks must be worn at church services.

If you are required to quarantine or self-isolate you should not attend church services.

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 prayer' 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.
