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.
As we continue to travel through uncertain times, we have made the decision to close both our churches for corporate worship until we can be more sure that things are safe again.
Although we are not worshipping in our buildings, we continue to meet online to pray together, and you are welcome to join us for any of the services shown further down this page.
All Saints' in Darton will continue to open for private prayer, and if you wish to come and find space and quiet for yourself, you are welcome to drop in between 2 and 4 on Sundays, or between 10 and 12 on Thursdays.

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.
As we open our doors for worship once again,
we are very aware that for some people there is a still a need to isolate.
Where possible, our worship will be streamed online, and you are very welcome to join us by clicking on the link below.
The regularly streamed services are as follows:
Morning Prayer - 9.00 a.m. from Tuesday to Saturday
Sunday Mass - 10.00 a.m.
Midweek Mass - 10.30 a.m. on Wednesday
Morning Prayer does not require an order of service, but for other services please click on the links below to download the orders of service.
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.
With love in Christ,
Fr. Tim Stevens
