If you are concerned that you have not been giving to the church via the collection plate at Zoom services, and would like to make a regular contribution to your own church (or churches), please consider joining the Parish Giving Scheme (PGS}. See below the service details or here for more information.

We are currently having problems with our recently set-up online giving page. If you would like to make a donation by internet bank transfer, please go to our Giving to the Parishes and Benefice page.


Regular Live Holy Communion Services, 10.30am (Temporarily suspended)

A service of Holy Communion will be held in the church shown st the top of this page, at 10.30am.

A Holy Communion sheet for use at Forcett and Aldbrough during these difficult times is here.
You can:
Download it onto a device and follow the service from it in church, (NB There are no wi-fi links in our churches yet) or

Print off a copy and bring it with you then take it home afterwards, or
Use a laminated copy from church and either keep it for your exclusive use or leave it to be sanitised

Here is the Melsonby Family Communion Order of Service which uses a slightly different form.

You must wear a face covering whilst in church unless you are asked to read or say prayers on behalf of the congregation.

Only the bread will be distributed to the congregation and although singing by a choir is now permitted, congregational hymn singing is still forbidden.

Private Prayer in church

Aldbrough is open twice weekly for private prayer. See details

Stanwick St John is also open for private prayer. Please note that there is no hand sanitiser or other special precautions in place here but it is well ventilated.

Daily Zoom Deanery Compline

Every evening at 9.00pm. See full details. Just click on the Zoom link and put in the ID and password.

Parish Giving Scheme (PGS)

The Church of England values the vital financial contributions its congregations make to its work but recognises that the way people deal with money - especially cash -  is changing.

If you have been wondering what to do about your usual gifts to your church given during the collection, please have a look at the Church of England's now preferred method of regular giving, the Parish Giving Scheme. The use of online and contactless payments is also being encouraged ffor occasional donations.

We have also put a more locally focussed page about it here on our website. It has the church details that you will need when you register with PGS.

Thank you for your support.
