We are currently updating our website. Please be patient with us while we make some changes.
Welcome to the website for the Parishes of St Mary, Haxby and St. Nicholas, Wigginton.
If you are visiting our website for the first time or are thinking of joining us – welcome!
Together we form what is known as a 'United Benefice'. The Benefice is situated some 4 miles (6.4 km) north of the ancient city of York, England, and our parishes serve a population of around 13,000 people. We are part of the Church of England deanery of York, within the diocese of York. Our bishop is the Archbishop of York.
Our mission as a Benefice is to step out in faith ... with God, with each other, and with our local community and wider world.
United in our mission the two parishes of Haxby and Wigginton also rejoice in being individual and distinctive in what each has offer as churches.
We welcome people of all ages and backgrounds to come and worship with us, to journey with us and join us in our mission, or simply come along and see what we have to offer. Children and Young People are very welcome and there is provision for them every Sunday.
The churches in the Benefice lie at the heart of the local community and they host wide-ranging events and groups in their halls, which are available for hire.
After looking at what we offer we hope that you might want to come along to our worship and activities, to join with us in our mission, or to explore and deepen your faith and feel part of our church family. We look forward to meeting you.
