Welcome

It is my joy to welcome you on behalf of the Church Family in the Parish of Easby, Skeeby, Brompton on Swale, and Bolton on Swale , an Anglican Church, part of the Richmond Deanery within The Diocese of Leeds.

We are one Church who worship in four friendly welcoming churches; and many other places within the parish. We are here for all people of all backgrounds, and all beliefs.

Our mission is to live out our faith as followers of Jesus Christ within our families, among our friends, whilst we work, rest and play.

Do take a look at who we are, or even "Come and See" you may be surprised at how much you like us.

If you cannot find what you are looking for on our web site, please do contact us by telephone or email.

With every blessing

All Are Always Welcome

It is my joy to welcome you on behalf of the Church in the Parish of Easby, Skeeby, Brompton on Swale, and Bolton on Swale, an Anglican Church, part of the Richmond Deanery within The Diocese of Leeds

From these areas and others, many people consider themselves part of one Church who work in partnership with many other groups and individuals within the area. In usual circumstances we can be found in many places within the parish, St Mary's Bolton on Swale CofE and Brompton CofE Primary Schools, Scorton Village Care Home, St Edmunds Community Space, and four friendly welcoming church buildings within the parish.

As you are aware, COVID-19 sadly prevents us meeting in our familiar ways.  All of our services have been and continue on line  you can pick them up on this website, under the heading Services and Worship and on our parish Facebook Page here:  We are also now able to worship in St Mary's church on a Sunday at 10.30, for which we have to book in to ensure a place.  The booking form is  on the hope page drop down menu under Forms. 

We continue seeking new ways to meet the needs within our communities through being a larger on line and telephone presence.  If you know of any way we can enhance what we are doing at present please do be in touch.

You can access:

  • Sunday worship - Sunday services are  provided face to face at 10.30 in St Mary's church, Bolton on Swale.  The serivce is online, You Tube, Facebook page and on the website. by 4pm each Sunday.
  • Regular reflections - Reverend Yvonne shares thoughts and prayers to help us in these difficult times
  • Open the book - has taken a pause with the Collective Worship team reflecting with the schools on line for the foreseeable future.
  • God and Popcorn - Messages from Alison and Angie with thoughts, prayers and activities for the God and Popcorn group. You can contact Alison and Angie
  • The Open Pantry - can be contacted by calling 07980 276226

In the meantime, we can all pray for one another. Worship is vital to who we are, yet the shape of worship is changing, what is not changing is that we are here for all people of all backgrounds, and all beliefs, and that All Are Always Welcome

Our mission is to live out our faith as followers of Jesus Christ within our families, among our friends, whilst we work, rest and play.
