Who are we?
Church is a local ecumenical partnership between the Church of England
and the Methodist Church together with the Roman Catholic Chaplaincy to
the University of York. All services of worship are held jointly between
Anglicans and Methodists. Our congregation is
an eclectic mix of ages, backgrounds and nationalities. We seek to be
an open, caring and inclusive church and everyone is welcome to worship
us. This website
gives you a glimpse of our church life to help you find fellowship among
us and so feel part of this church community. See our diary and read about our groups and activities.
What has Heslington Church ever done for you?
The church serves the local community by bringing together a diverse group of wonderful people who feel united by their faith.
Who pays for all of this?
Contrary to what many people think, the church does not receive any goverment funding and is entirely dependent on donations. Read more and download finance leaflet.
Holy Week and Easter Services
The preacher on Maundy Thursday evening, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday will be The Revd. Stephen Burgess, Chairman of York and Hull Methodist District.
Where are we?
The church building is on the edge of the University of York campus, in the village of Heslington, close to the city of York. The church was extended in 1973 and now seats around 250 people. It also has a beautifully decorated side chapel which is used for small services and quiet prayer. How to find us.
News: Gardening volunteers needed!
The churchyard is maintained by a keen group of local volunteers. Are you in a position to do some volunteer gardening for a couple of hours each week (or month) at Heslington church? More info here.
News: Church Re-ordering
Between January and April 2016 a re-ordering project has taken place in the church. Some old choir pews were removed, the tower room was refurbished, and most importantly of all, the South entrance was improved with a new glass inner porch in order for it to be reinstated as the main entrance to the church. Visit the church for more information.
