    Public Worship resumes in our Churches

    Communal Worship in our Churches continues. Our Parish Priest Claire will resume the normal pattern of weekly services from and including Wednesday 2nd December 2020 as follows:

    Brookfield:      Holy Communion at 10.00am on Wednesdays and at 9.30am on Sundays (these services will be live-streamed (*) on the Brookfield Facebook page – see below for details).

    Stainton:         Holy Communion at 11.00am on Sundays

    Hilton:             The Church remains closed for the time being – Claire and Hilton PCC are hoping to re-open the Church early in the New Year. Sally and Barbara, the Churchwardens, are looking forward to Christmas next year and want to fill it with angels for Advent 2021 [Editor's Note: you can see some of the angels here]. There are numerous (knitting) patterns on the internet but if you would like a copy of the knitting pattern used by Sally please send her a request by e-mail (sallyhamlin22@btinternet.com) and she will send you one. Please start making your knitted angels, the more you make the more spectacular it will be!

      Stainton Church                      Hilton Church                          Brookfield Church

    St Peter's Church, Hilton, St Peter & St Paul's Church, Stainton, and St Margaret's Church, Brookfield, are all dedicated:

    • to being a visible Christian presence within the communities they serve,
    • to holding those communities before God in prayer,
    • making real and valued contributions to addressing issues,
    • offering pastoral care, and support, and
    • providing places and patterns of worship to help people from all walks of life to draw closer to God and worship Him.

    The Stainton and Hilton Churches have a rich and long heritage of service:

    • St Peter's dating back to the 12th Century in the present building; 
    • St Peter and St Paul's having a foundation which  probably dates back to the 7th Century.

    Brookfield Church was originally a "daughter church" within Stainton Parish:

    • St Margaret's became a Parish in its own right in 1988.
    In the 21st Century all three buildings and worshipping communities offer beautiful venues for weddings and Baptisms and we hope to welcome families to celebrate these special events with us.

    We hope that you can find the information you are looking for about our Churches, but if not, please do contact us
