The Benefice

St Thomas’s Parish Church is part of a wider Benefice comprising four churches in close proximity geographically, led by our Benefice Vicar, Rev Chrissy Wilson. We are united with St Thomas the Apostle, Killinghall and St James’, Birstwith. The Benefice includes Felliscliffe Chapel, built in the days when walking to church at Hampsthwaite from Felliscliffe would have been quite a journey to take every Sunday! 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.
