The Benefice comprises four churches in close proximity geographically, they are St. Thomas the Apostle, Killinghall; St. Thomas a Becket, Hampsthwaite and St James’, Birstwith. The Benefice includes Felliscliffe Chapel, built in the days when walking to church at Hampsthwaite from Felliscliffe would have been quite a journey to take every Sunday! As a Benefice, we worship together once a month on the fourth (and fifth if applicable) Sunday of the month, taking it in turns to host the service. This is a great way of connecting with and supporting one another in our faith, sharing in worship and fellowship, and strengthening our mission. We are committed to one another and care for each other. Our Benefice Vicar is Reverend Suzy McCarter.
