All Saints Church


All Saints Church is a Grade 2 listed building, standing prominently on a hill, immediately alongside the A170 Pickering to Scarborough road, and overlooking the picturesque village of Thornton Dale.


 The present building, largely 14th century, is unusual in that, apart from the chancel, the main body of the Church is completely of that period known as the 'decorated' style of architecture. The chancel was completely rebuilt in 1865/6.


The church is open in the hours of daylight and you are welcome to visit look and pray.



The church and its people are there to give praise to God and to help each other explore and learn about the Christian faith and its meaning for their lives. It is also there to serve the whole community - encouraging us all to live in a truly humane way and caring for those in need.



The church is lead by the Rector, Churchwardens and Parochial Church Council assisted by some retired clergy and lay members of the congregation.
