Missions may have different focuses or themes. Some concentrate on adult catechesis, Scripture study, meditation, healing, marriage, or a variety of spiritual exercises. But the Anglican down-to-earth preaching always emphasizes love, compassion and mercy. This is the key message of our mission. This is the mission of our parishes to proclaim that in Jesus Christ is plentiful redemption for all. Parish mission is necessary and urgent in our life today. There is nothing, which will replace it in the periodic and vigorous renewal of Christian life.

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.
