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

Our Parish Church Councils have decided, after prayerful consideration, that church services must be suspended for a short while so that we can follow the Government's advice to 'Stay at Home' and in the light of the current Coronavirus situation in York.   This decision will be reviewed in mid-February or as a result of further Government advice.   We appreciate that some of you may be disappointed by this decision but it has been taken to ensure the safety of our congregations and visitors.   Our church buildings are open (on specified days) for private prayer.

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.
