    The Helmsley Herald is available on the website - see 'Helmsley Herald page'.  Vicar's letter below.......


    Dear friends,

    This month our magazine The Helmsley Herald is being delivered free to every household in Helmsley.  We as the Church in the Market Place are doing this because we believe that we offer something special.  We worship God.  We believe that God loves us.  We believe that God creates and sustains life.  Whilst those who attend regularly call themselves Christians we believe that the Church is a place for everyone to explore and ask the deeper questions of life.  We are also a strong supportive community that welcomes everyone.

    As the pandemic subsides in this country at least, the church in Britain is re-emerging.  Our church buildings have been closed for too long and it is good that we are now beginning to thrive once more.  Since Mothering Sunday, way back in March, Sunday worship has continued, strengthened by some great music and preaching.  We are desperate to re-open the Church every day as we always have, and we will let you know as soon as this is possible.

    If you have just moved in to Helmsley and would like me to visit then do let me know.  If you have been here a while and would like me to visit then again please let me know.  Now that some restrictions are lifted I would be glad to call.

    I hope that there is a lot to interest you in this magazine including our activities, local advertisers (always useful) and a survey from Helmsley Environmental Group.

    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.
