Welcome to the Parish Church of St Peter and St Paul, Pickering!
St Peter’s and St Paul’s is a living Church, part of the Church of England Diocese of York, where God is worshipped daily by a large and active congregation, who continue a thousand year old tradition of prayer, study, and worship in this place.
The Church is popular with couples seeking marriage or baptism for their children, is well used by the town for civic and community occasions and concerts, and provides a real focal point for Ryedale. Its extensive mediaeval wall paintings also make it a real source of enjoyment for pilgrims and visitors from all over the world.
The Church is open daily, between Morning and Evening Prayer, and is a perfect place to help set the imagination free; a space of great peace, valued by many who seek to draw closer to God in public worship or private prayer. So once you have explored this website, come and explore for yourself this ‘house of God and gate of heaven’.
