About us

Working together

We - the clergy and congregations - aim to be work together for the benefit of the whole community of which we are a part: Knaresborough, Goldsborough, Nidd, Brearton, Flaxby and Coneythorpe.

On the accompanying pages we introduce ourselves, and show the various roles and responsibilities shared among members of our congregations. 

Many people are involved; many more could be involved, and if you would like to investigate how you can use your energy, time and skills more fully in the life of our churches, please speak to the clergy or churchwardens. As with all organisations whose life encompasses children and vulnerable adults, we follow stringent safeguarding procedures, and those with relevant roles within our churches have DBS checks.

We are committed to sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, and increasingly our focus is upon the mission of the Church. So this is our prayer:

God of Mission
Who alone brings growth to your Church,
Send your Holy Spirit to give
Vision to our planning,
Wisdom to our actions,
And power to our witness.
Help our church to grow in numbers,
In spiritual commitment to you,
And in service to our local community,
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
