Welcome to the Benefices of Alne and Brafferton, which comprise of six churches in four parishes in the beautiful Vale of York, between the A1(M) and the A19, with good access to York, the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and the East Coast. These vibrant and friendly rural communities offer a wide arrange of activity opportunities for all ages.
We have strong relationships with our local schools, introduced a Messy Church and have support from American interns with children and youth work through our involvement with Tees Valley Youth for Christ, but are yet to encourage families to attend our regular services. Through participation in the York Diocese LYCiG (Leading Your Church into Growth) programme we have identified the need to be more involved in the community events with a view to mission, develop and reinstate family services, nurture the prayer life of our existing congregations and work closer together.

Unfortunately it is not always straightforward for clergy from overseas to be appointed to posts in the Church of England. The policy of the UK Border Agency is that normally the organisation making an appointment has been able to prove that it is impossible to appoint a person who is a national of a European Economic Area country, before a visa giving permission to work will be issued to a person who comes from elsewhere.
