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.
During the most recent national lockdown we made the difficult decision to close all our church buildings - but we are planning to start 'in person' services again from 28 March - more details are on the 'Services and Events' page. The church buildings will also be available on request for private prayer from that date - please contact a Churchwarden to arrange a time.
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 - we invite you to light a candle at 10am on Sunday, and to join in with the bible readings and prayers for the week, as we offer a joint act of worship from our homes.
For practical help during the Covid situation, please see the list of local help available on the 'Parish News' page, which is updated regularly.
Every blessing, and may we continue faithful to Christ in this situation,
Rev Caroline Hewlett
