    Dear friends,

       Now is Christ risen…

    The liturgical seasons are potentially rich in exploring themes: waiting and expectancy in Advent, joy at Christmas, and a deeper sense of understanding at Epiphany as the nature of God in Christ is revealed. During Lent we may discipline ourselves in some way and then at Easter the fulfilment of hope in Christ’s resurrection. Ascension Pentecost and Trinity are yet to come.

    The anxiety of the last few months have made it difficult to pay full attention to the liturgical seasons to the extent that we might have wished for.

    Yet we celebrate Easter in early April and we are called to be an ‘Easter people’. However battered and bruised we may be feeling by the pandemic, let us find in our hearts seeds of hope. Hope for our loved ones and ourselves, hope for a world more aligned to God’s loving purposes.

    As spring arrives may we comprehend the new life of Easter and rejoice.

    Happy Easter!

    Very best wishes,

              Tim Robinson, Vicar








    Lord Jesus Christ,
    you taught us to love our neighbour,
    and to care for those in need

    as if we were caring for you.
    In this time of anxiety, give us strength
    to comfort the fearful, to tend the sick,
    and to assure the isolated
    of our love, and your love,
    for your name’s sake.


    Helmsley Parish in the Diocese of York

    Helmsley's parish church, dedicated to All Saints, dates back a thousand years and more. The present building , built on Norman foundations, was dedicated in 1838. Helmsley Parish also includes Anglican churches at East Moors, Rievaulx and Sproxton.                 

    On Sundays in Helmsley there are two well-attended services and a regular midweek Holy Communion. Locals and visitors alike, of all traditions, are always very welcome to all our services. After Sunday's main 9.30 am service at Helmsley there is an opportunity to meet one another over refreshments.                  

    Helmsley Church is open every day as a place of interest and for private prayer from 9am - 5pm (summer) and 9am - 4pm (winter). St Columba's Chapel, in the south transept, has votive candles to aid people's own particular prayers.                                                         

    A Christian church has existed in Helmsley since AD 200, according to the 19th century wall-paintings in the north aisle. Certainly there was one on this site by the time of the Norman Conquest. (There's a 10th century hog-back tombstone in the porch and an entry in the Domesday Book of 1086.) The present building's splendid chancel arch, one of the largest in Yorkshire, dates from the 12th century (as does its counterpart over the entrance). Otherwise the handsome present day building is largely the result of major restoration in Victorian times, with the stained glass as well as the murals from this period too.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

    All this variety of history and interest makes Helmsley Church a very special place to visit and worship in. More information about our other churches is elsewhere on the website.
