The Church of St Peter’s is situated at Hutton and has Norman fragment in the South doorway as well as early English arcades, a perpendicular tower and Victorian windows. There are six church bells in all which ring out loud and crystal clear. They attract campanologists from far and wide who come to "ring the changes".

The Old Vicarage next to the Church was built in 1874 and is a handsome brick building in the Gothic style which is now privately owned after a new vicarage was built in 1967 within its grounds.

The three faces of the church clock are now fully restored and we are grateful to the Parish Council, The All Churches Trust and the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust for grants towards this work, together with kind donations from individual people.  Many thanks to all.

The Churchyard gained a Yorkshire Rose Award in Summer 2005 as being the best maintained in the whole of Yorkshire.  Only two places of worship in the county received this accolade, which was  awarded at the discretion of the Judges.

Congratulations to the hard-working team of mowers who operate on a rota basis to achieve this high standard of maintenance, and in particular congratulations to Alan Marson who undertakes all the strimming himself and is constantly in the churchyard over-seeing the whole maintenance programme.

Sunday Service Cranswick 10.30

Inter-Church Prayer Fellowship - Mondays 9.30 am at 13a Orchard Lane

On Wednesday 18 April 2012 we celebrated the 150th anniversary of the first service ever held at the Chapel.

We welcomed around 100 people from chapels and churches in the district and enjoyed  a wonderful evening which started with a celebration of hymns and songs enjoyed over the past 150 years.

Worship was led by the Rev’d Phil Clarke who was Minister here from 1983 to 1988.  Phil was ably assisted by Rev’d Ian Hill and Rev’d Robert Amos.

Others who took part in the service included Judy Brown and Mary Barraclough who sang a modern version of Amazing Grace and the Driffield Singing Group with Robert Amos.  The evening was rounded off by a delicious supper.

Thank you to everyone who took part or helped to make the evening such a wonderful success, and in particular to Kathy and Shirley for  feeding us all.

Thanks also to Win and Lawrie for their hospitality the following morning,  giving us the opportunity to catch up with Phil and Janet before they returned to their new ministry in Burnley.
