The Parish Church of All Saints Slingsby lies on the western side of the village. The present church was built in the late 1860s in the image of its predecessor on the site, which had to be demolished. It is therefore mainly 15th century in style with Victorian modifications.
Along with neighbouring parishes, Slingsby’s Anglican church belongs to the Benefice of the Street Parishes, which is part of the Diocese of York.
All Saints Church has published two new updated guides to the church building arising from recent research by Dr. Dav Smith from the University of York. Local History Group members and Slingsby School were also involved with the preparation of these. The two colourful guides give the history of the church and point out the key features. The adult guide costs £2.50 and the children’s guide 75p. Both are available from the church.
In 2018 a major project has gained Heritage Lottery Fund support. It aims to replace roofing material, install CCTV and create a new Local History Resource Centre and exhibition area in the church. More details here.
The original Slingsby Church Time Capsule of 1867 was unearthed in 2015 and a new one buried in 2016. More details HERE
Earlier, a major appeal had started in 2009 to raise funds to restore the church tower. Work eventually commenced in March 2012 and was sucessfully completed in May 2012. Read more about the All Saints Church tower restoration and appeal here.

The Ryedale Festival’s Spring Launch Weekend took place on 15-17 March and with it the full programme for North Yorkshire’s leading summer music festival was published. We are now pleased to report that the Festival will be returning to Slingsby’s All Saints’ church on Monday 15 July, when pianist Jonathan Plowright will be playing Brahms. This concert will be preceded by a talk by BBC radio regular Katy Hamilton, exploring the public and private faces of Brahms.
The Spring Launch weekend featured BBC New Generation Artists and proved a big success.
The Aris String Quartet kicked off proceedings in Helmsley on Friday 15 March, with quartets by Haydn, Janacek and Dvorak.
On Saturday “Come and Sing with John Rutter” in St Peter’s Norton welcomed some 300 amateur singers from across Ryedale and beyond. By all accounts, they enjoyed the occasion immensely.
Saturday evening was jazz night. In the National Centre for Early Music in York, the Festival presented composer and bass player Misha Mullov-Abbado, with his talented group of young jazz names.
The weekend was brought to a close on Sunday afternoon with a piano recital by Mariam Batsashvili, a prodigiously talented young pianist from Georgia, who beguiled with her Haydn and Mozart and wowed with her Liszt, which rocked the Birdsall House ballroom with its power.
Booking for all July’s Festival events opens on 10 April. To book, go online at www.ryedalefestival.com or book by post to Ryedale Festival Box Office, The Memorial Hall, Potter Hill, Pickering, YO18 8AA or by phone on 01751 475777.
All Saints’ church is kept open by the hard work and dedication of a very small – and ageing – congregation. Although attendance at Sunday services is often very small, we know that people in Slingsby love All Saints, and appreciate it being there for Festivals, Marriages, Christenings and Funerals. We would warmly welcome new members of the congregation. Please do feel free to just ‘turn up’ whenever is convenient. Alternatively, if you can’t make Sundays but have a great idea for alternative times and dates, do let us know what might suit you …..some of us are very interested in more church-in-the-pub events.
