Welcome to the website of the Parish of Swaledale with Arkengarthdale.

We are 4 congregations in the northern Yorkshire Dales, living out our Christian discipleship together.​

Details of church services are on the 'Services and Events' page.

Our church buildings are open daily for visits and private prayer.

Weekly Parish Newsletter - Please email us (through the link at the top of this page) if you would like to receive the weekly newsletter by email each Saturday evening. This includes a short order of service and news and notices.  Past editions can be downloaded from the Parish News page.

The Newsletter is also our worship resource - Services are taking place weekly in church, but if you choose to worship at home, we invite you to light a candle on Sunday morning, and to  join in with the bible readings and prayers for the week, as we offer a joint act of worship from our homes and in church.

Every blessing, and may we continue faithful to Christ,

Rev Caroline Hewlett
