Church and Chapel

St Nicholas Church, Stillington

The church is one of five in a Benefice (Farlington, Marton, Sheriff Hutton, Stillington and Sutton on Forest) with one vicar. It is well supported with over 100 on the electoral roll.

Services are shown on the Church Notice Board and in the monthly Stillington News. Some services are based upon the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and some from Common Worship. A modern joint village praise with the Methodist Chapel takes place periodically.

There are informal Morning Prayers at 9.00am each Thursday when people of all denominations are welcome. The prayers are often led by Lay People. There is a music group which helps to lead worship at some services.

For further information please contact one of the Wardens. A very warm welcome is extended to everyone.

Stillington Methodist Church

The Chapel is situated in Main Street, set back off the road, between two houses. This particular building was opened in 1971, the old chapel having been pulled down to build housing.

There is an Evening Service most Sundays at 6.30pm within the local circuit with services either being taken by the Minister (who lives in Easingwold) or local preachers. Periodically there is a joint Village Praise Service, alternating with St Nicholas' Church. Regular Bible Study/Fellowship are held. Details from one of the stewards.

Cream Teas are held each Bank Holiday Monday afternoon. Proceeds are split between the Chapel and the Church.

Stillington Chapel is part of the York Circuit and various services and social gatherings are held throughout the year with other Churches.
