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.

Latest News

Although we are not worshipping in our buildings at present, we continue to meet online to pray together daily, and you are welcome to join us for any of the services shown further down this page.

Our Archbishops have called us to pray for our nation daily at 6.00 p.m. throughout February.  Everyone is welcome to join us as we pray together, and details of how to join are 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.

There is a lot going on in our United Benefice through Lent this year even though we are not meeting in our churches, and you are very welcome to join us for anything that we are doing, whether you are a regular member of one of our congregations, a member of our local communities, or if you are neither of these.

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. from Tuesday to Saturday

Sunday Mass - 10.00 a.m.

Midweek Mass - 10.30 a.m. on Wednesday

Lent Study Groups - 7.30 p.m. on Thursdays in Lent

Prayers for the Nation - 6.00 p.m. every day in February

Compline - 8.30 p.m. every Saturday in Lent

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
