      Stainton Church  Hilton Church  Brookfield Church

    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.
    In the 21st Century all three buildings and worshipping communities offer beautiful venues for weddings and Baptisms and we hope to welcome families to celebrate these special events with us.

    We hope that you can find the information you are looking for about our Churches, but if not, please do contact us

    Vicar:  Revd Claire Todd
