from the church families at Fewston and Blubberhouses in the beautiful Washburn Valley in North Yorkshire and from the other six churches that form the ecumenical group of Washburn Valley and Mid-Wharfe churches.
Our two historic Church of England churches, 3 miles apart at Fewston and Blubberhouses, belong to the Harrogate Deanery of the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales. Services are held each Sunday in one of our churches, with the exception of the fifth Sunday of the month which is usually a United Service.

We hope that you find what you are looking for on our website. Please tell us if you can't, and do come and worship with us if you are able or just feel free to visit our churches.
