Welcome to the Stanwick Group of Churches website

The Stanwick Group of Churches is a united benefice which comprises the Church of England parishes of Forcett, Aldbrough St. John and Melsonby in beautiful, rural North Yorkshire within the Diocese of Leeds 

The picture (R) shows Stanwick St John church which gives the benefice its name but is now a redundant church vested in the Churches Conservation Trust. 

Although this site has been created mainly as an additional information source for the people of the parishes,  we hope that if you are from outside the area you will get a flavour of an area that is pleasant to live in both in terms of its scenery and its inhabitants. 

A Church Near You 
The churches in our benefice also have their details published on the Church of England's church-finder site, A Church Near You. 
That site has details of most churches in England and it is easy to find them by county or diocese. Should you need to check parish boundaries, that is a good site for that purpose.
