St Mary’s Church, LeakeWelcome to our church.
St Mary’s Church Leake is a beautiful grade 1 listed church in the shelter of the North Yorkshire Moors. It is a place of calm next to the busy A19 as it connects York to Teesside. We warmly welcome our “second congregation” who break their journeys here. We regret that the coronavirus precautions mean that the church is currently locked, but we are committed to reopening it for visiting and private prayer as soon as possible.
The church was once in the deserted Medieval village of Leake; it now serves the two thriving nearby villages of Borrowby and Knayton. We strive to be a Christian presence at the heart of our local communities. Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer worship and events as we usually would. We are committed to being a prayerful and worshipping church in a new way at this difficult time. You can read more here.
We are part of the Diocese of York in the Church of England, but we welcome people of all backgrounds. We are also part of a group of churches in the small villages close to the North Yorkshire Moors. If you like visiting us, it is well worth exploring them as well.
If you appreciate our work, please consider making a donation. We are a small local charity and we receive no external funding.
We take our responsibilities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults very seriously. You can read our safeguarding policy here and if you have any safeguarding concerns, you can contact our safeguarding officer here.
