If you are coming to a service, it is best to check here that the service is happening as usual, as times and dates do occasionally change.

We have strong links with our village school, Crayke Church of England Primary School, and always enjoy welcoming the children, staff and families to visit church.

Bulb Planting at St Cuthbert's, Crayke: 
I'm sure most of you know the amazing display of daffodils that appears every year on the hill at Crayke.  In 2017 a large group of people from the school, the church and the community joined together to help create a new area of beautiful flowers in the Saxon Burial Ground behind the churchyard.  People of all ages planted snowdrops, bluebells and fritillaries, as part of a project to develop this ground as a wild flower garden. 

It was great to see a partnership between church, village and school all caring for God's earth together.
