As a traditional country parish we seek to be faithful in our worship of God and in sharing in His mission. Many centuries of loving care of countless hearts and hands have given us a priceless heritage in our ancient buildings. We aim to embrace all with His love and can assure you of a warm welcome at any of our services and hope that you will feel something of the atmosphere of prayer, and thanksgiving which is so characteristic of our historic English churches if and when you visit us.

Our parish of Laithkirk is committed to safeguarding children, young people and adults from harm. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO). Our Diocese of Leeds’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the PSO or the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority’s children or adult social care services. This Benefice has appointed Su Graves (Romaldkirk and Cotherstone) David Smith (Bowes) Colin Clarke (Startforth and Brignall) Margaret Walton (Laithkirk) as the Benefice Safeguarding Officers.
