All Saints, Darton

&

St John the Evangelist, Staincross

Welcome to the United Benefice of Darton and Staincross in the North of Barnsley.  

We are a community of two churches working together to welcome all comers and share the Christian message with those around us.

Please click on one of the links below to find what you are looking for, and we hope soon to welcome you to one of our churches.

Latest News

On Sunday 25th July, both our churches are looking to return to a style of worship

that is closer to what happened before the Coronavirus changed so much for us.

In practice, this means that there will be less socially distanced seating,

although some will still be available for those who would like to use it, and we will be singing hymns again. 

The current practice for receiving communion will not change,

and this will still be done with the greatest of care, with the priest wearing gloves and a face mask.

If you are unsure of how we are looking after each other in our churches, please do contact Fr Tim for a conversation.

Message from the Vicar

It's wonderful to welcome you to the website of these two churches, where I am very proud to be the vicar.

Streamed Worship

 

Although our doors are closed for corporate worship, we continue to worship together and where possible, our worship will be streamed online.

 

You are very welcome to join us by clicking on the link below.  

The regularly streamed services and events are as follows:

Morning Prayer - 9.00 a.m. on Tuesday, Friday & Saturday

(Morning Prayer on Wednesday and Thursday is in our churches)

Sunday Mass - 10.30 a.m.

Midweek Eucharist - 10.30 a.m. on Wednesday

Our two churches not only have a vast amount of history between them, having stood witness to over five hundred years of history, they are also places of vision and hope for a future for the communities that they serve.

They are first and foremost churches; places where we meet to give glory to God, to share in His grace freely given to us, to hold in our prayers the cares and concerns of His world, and to welcome all who come to join us.

Through history, churches have been places of refuge, places of safety, places of love, and places of community.  We aim to continue this tradition in our two churches, and to be present in the communities that we serve, providing a constant invitation, welcome, support and love as we grow in our Christian faith and mission.

I hope that you find what you are looking for on this website, and whether you are interested in history, community activities, a wedding, a baptism, or joining us for one of our regular services, I hope that you find the invitation here and feel encouraged to come and meet us soon in person.

If you have any questions, please contact me by email, or click here for my other contact details, and I look forward to welcoming you soon.

With love in Christ,

Fr. Tim Stevens
