Church of All Saints and St James

The present church of All Saints and St James (an unusual double dedication dating from very early days) was built mainly in the 13th century, though parts may go back to the 12th century, including two small lancet windows.

There are five churches in Kirkdale, a welcoming and friendly group of Anglican Parishes serving the beautiful and very different rural villages and hamlets between Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside.

All the churches are open daily during daylight hours, and we encourage you to visit any or all of them if you are visiting us!

Although All Saints and St James is a small church, there is always plenty going on in the benefice, including home groups and events to mark special occasions in the church year.

Messy Church usually happens on the third Monday afternoon of the month at St Hilda’s Church, Beadlam - see the Kirkdale Churches website for more information.  

You can find more information about the history of the church on the Kirkdale Churches website, as well as details of our Sunday services and how to join us - new members and visitors are always very welcome.
