The Executive



ARE YOU LOOKING for a HAPPY, FRIENDLY church experience where God is honoured, Jesus is King, the Holy Spirit is acknowledged, and children enjoy their own activities?


We are WELCOME CHURCH and we like to live up to our name.  If this sounds good to you, do join us for a  RELAXED way of doing church.


We meet Sunday afternoons, 3pm on the 3rd floor, Pickering Memorial Hall, Potter Hill.


Our invitation to you is COME AS YOU ARE.  Together, we can discover how Jesus helps us in every situation and ALWAYS GIVE US HOPE.  We look forward to chatting over some yummy refreshments !


Our vision and purpose

We love to meet together to worship God our Father and to enable and encourage everyone to grow in faith and in relationship with Jesus as the centre of life.  We aim to build strong relationships with one another and with our local community as we serve the people of Ryedale and beyond.  We also meet in small groups during the week, as this provides the best environment for us to share life together.  In the small group we learn together, support and encourage each other, enjoy life and have fun.  We seek to  connect with people in our local community showing care, love and respect for all people.  


When we meet on Sundays we all have a role to play - whether it’s welcoming people with a smile, serving refreshments, playing an instrument, looking after children or teaching.  We aim to impact our community as we take the life-changing message of Jesus to those around us through our words, actions and lifestyle.  

We aim to show and demonstrate the love of God through practical action, faithful service and loving hearts.  

We are a Church that challenges complacency, encourages involvement, welcomes everyone and offers hope.  In all of this we enjoy and value having fun together.
