St Peter's Church, Hilton, St Peter & St Paul's Church, Stainton, and St Margaret's Church, Brookfield, are all dedicated:
- to being a visible Christian presence within the communities they serve,
- to holding those communities before God in prayer,
- making real and valued contributions to addressing issues,
- offering pastoral care, and support, and
- providing places and patterns of worship to help people from all walks of life to draw closer to God and worship Him.
The Stainton and Hilton Churches have a rich and long heritage of service:
- St Peter's dating back to the 12th Century in the present building;
- St Peter and St Paul's having a foundation which probably dates back to the 7th Century.
Brookfield Church was originally a "daughter church" within Stainton Parish:
- St Margaret's became a Parish in its own right in 1988.
