Carol Singing

We do hope to some carol singing and will publicise these in the villages and on this website. You will find details for Bishop Wilton elsewhere in the Pump.

St Edith's Beck and Bells Project

The Beck and Bells project held the official launch of its book "A Local History of Bishop Wilton" on the weekend of 8/9th October. It was a huge success. The exhibition was visited by more than 300 people over the weekend and we have sold more than 50% of our stocks of books - so if you want one you had better move quickly. They can be bought on-line (by clicking the image opposite. The price is £34.79 includes postage and packaging) or if you are local you can get one form the village shop for £27.50.

All proceeds go to the upkeep of the church building of St Edith's, Bishop WIlton.

The Garrowby Churches are set in the Yorkshire Wolds, and consist of 5 parishes. As worshipping communities we aim to grow ourselves in our faith and discipleship, support and engage with our local communities and bring new people to Christ.

We are blessed with beautiful buildings and faithful commitment from our congregations. As we continue to grow together, we are being enabled to offer a variety of worship and outreach. Lay ministry and leadership is key to all we offer, and encouraged as we endeavour to open the Kingdom and its values to all.

The Christian faith is focused on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. We also believe his death achieved something very special: the opportunity to reconnect with the God that we might believe in but might sometimes feel remote from.

We believe that Jesus was not just a human being but, in some way that we cannot fully understand, God as well. We believe in God the Father, the creator of the entire universe, and the Holy Spirit, who is the way we can experience Jesus today. Not three gods but one, who together are described as the ‘Trinity’ – a description not so much of philosophy but of the relationship at the heart of God.

In the most famous Christian prayer we pray ‘Our Father…’ This creator God wants a relationship with us, for us to be his children and to give us, as Jesus says, ‘life in all its fulness’ (John 10.10).
