Welcome to the Benefice of The Howardian Group; five parishes and churches in a deeply rural location at the southern end of the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in North Yorkshire. Straddling the A64, the benefice has excellent road and rail links to Malton, York, Leeds and the East Coast.
With a wealth of well-kept and listed church buildings dating from the 11th century, beautiful Yorkshire villages and stunning countryside around the stately home of Castle Howard, this is an area which attracts a lot of tourists, walkers and cyclists. We look to be accessible, open and welcoming, enriching the lives of those we come into contact with and providing pastoral support for those of the local communities. We offer a wide tradition of worship styles and have close links with a number of local schools.
