Our Benefice

At present, All Saints is part of the joint Benefice of Rudby in Cleveland, Middleton-upon-Leven, Crathorne, Kirklevington, and Worsall with Picton. A Benefice is defined as a parish, or group of parishes under a single minister. It is part of a larger group called a Deanery, which in turn is part of the York Archdeaconry and ultimately the Diocese of York. A chart of how we fit in the Church of England can be found here or downloaded as a PDF here.

Plans are being put in place for two separate Benefices, one that will encompass the Parishes of Rudby in Cleveland, Middleton-upon-Leven, Crathorne, Carlton, Faceby and Whorlton, and another that will encompass the Parishes of Yarm, Kirklevington and Worsall with Picton.

The various parishes are already working together in preparation for the introduction of these new benefices, expected to be later in 2019.
