WHO WE ARE

Who we are

Followers of Jesus

We are the Anglican church family of the Parish of Easby, Skeeby, Brompton on Swale, and Bolton on Swale. Our mission is to live out our faith as followers of Jesus Christ within our families, among our friends and within our communities whilst we work, rest and have fun.

Our purpose, as Christians, is to follow Jesus and to share our lives with others in the hope that they will see the truth of Jesus in us; despite all of our faults and our humanity.

Jesus told us to love one another and to go into the world and share the good news.

Living an abundant life

Living a life following Jesus liberates rather than oppresses. “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

The bible does not say, “Do this, and then maybe you will be good enough to be one of my sheep.” Jesus says, “You belong to me already. No one can snatch you out of my hand.”

Secure in this belonging, we are free to live the abundant life of which Jesus spoke. This abundant life is not necessarily about abundance in years, or in wealth, health, status, or accomplishments. It is life that is abundant in the love of God, made known in Jesus Christ, love that overflows to others.

It is eternal life because its source is in God who is eternal, and in Jesus, who is the resurrection and the life.

All are welcome

Jesus ministered to all people. He did not differentiate or collude and he never harmed anyone.

You may be seeking to connect or reconnect with God or in need of prayer. Perhaps you are simply looking for a quiet place to find a moment of peace and contemplation. Maybe you'd like to talk to someone over a cup of coffee. There are no obligations.

Where we meet

There are four traditional places of worship in the parish with church buildings at Easby, Skeeby, Brompton on Swale and Bolton on Swale. We also get together in homes, cafes and other locations. We are in different places week to week so please refer to the calendar for where are meeting.

As well as being of spiritual importance the church buildings are of historical interest.
