God of our lives, we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip, for the love he shared among us, and for his devotion to duty. We entrust him now to your love and mercy, through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

OUR BENEFICE, OUR CHURCHES, OUR FUTURE
The Benefice of the Whorlton Group is located on the north-western boundary of the North York Moors National Park in Cleveland, North Yorkshire. It was created on 31st October 2019 when six parishes formed the new benefice. Those parishes are Carlton-in-Cleveland, Crathorne, Faceby, Middleton-on-Leven, Rudby-in-Cleveland and Whorlton (Swainby and Potto). The Benefice of Whorlton is a part of the Deanery of Stokesley within the Diocese of York in the Church of England. We have eight beautiful churches in our benefice, with the oldest church, Holy Cross in Whorlton, having a very interesting history. Today the church in Whorlton is a partial ruin, but it served in the past as a place of worship for many generations.
