The Benefice

St James’ Parish Church is part of a wider Benefice comprising four churches in close proximity geographically.  We are united with St Thomas a Becket, Hampsthwaite; Felliscliffe Chapel of Ease; and St Thomas the Apostle, Killinghall.  As a Benefice, we worship together once a month on the fourth 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.
