A very warm welcome

All Saints Cawood, Ryther and Wistow

Dedication to All Saints is frequently encountered in this area of Yorkshire: all three Churches in the Benefice, are dedicated to All Saints. This may be the result of a typically canny Yorkshire desire to hedge one’s bets, rather than trusting to the patronage of just one or two selected saints!  More positively, it represents a conviction that all, whether celebrated or obscure, whether great or small, are precious and holy in God’s sight, and welcome in his house. In that spirit, we welcome all who wish to visit our churches, whether to attend a service or to experience for themselves, in a moment of quietness, its atmosphere of prayer, praise and peace, built up over many centuries of worship.
