Welcome to the  Moorland Parishes Group website


We are a group of Christians who worship in five churches in and around the beautiful Upper Esk Valley of the North York  Moors.

There is always a service in at  least one of the churches on a Sunday and midweek services take place in a variety of places. Please check the Services page  or the What’s on page for further details.

We extend a warm welcome to all visitors and hope to see you soon at one of our services.

If you have any photos of Church  events please send them to
