Church Activities

Parish Magazine

Delighted to say that the printed copies have now resumed.   An electronic copy can however be accessed through the news page.

The Parish magazine is produced monthly and delivered free by volunteers to homes in Escrick, Deighton, Hollicars, Crockey Hill, Stillingfleet, Kelfied and Naburn. Copies are also available for collection at Crockey Hill Farm shop and in Escrick Church. If you would like anything including in the magazine please send it to [email protected] by the 10th of the month, for publishing the following month.


Due to the Covid situation, unfortunately Tuesday Ringing practice is currently suspended.

We are delighted to have a loyal band of Bell ringers who normally ring each Sunday for our 10 am Service and practice each Tuesday Evening between 7.30pm and 9pm. The Ringers are led by our Ringing Master Robert Richards. (Bell Ringers page coming soon).

Churches are special places and there are some things about a church wedding that you just can’t get anywhere else. St Helen’s is no exception. Visit the Weddings page.
