At the heart of the village of Sharow lies the church of St John the Evangelist. The mission of the church in this parish is to be a centre for Christian worship, witness, teaching and pastoral care for everyone.The church serves Sharow and the surrounding villages of Copt Hewick, Marton le Moor, Hutton Conyers and Bridge Hewick.
St John's are part of the bigger Cathedral parish within the diocese of Ripon and Leeds, in the Church of England. We are here as a community of Christians seeking to follow Jesus, not with all the answers, but as a community to explore what it means to be a Christian in our local community and in the world today. We share worship together on Sundays and in groups during the week, we are involved in village life and try to equip our members for Christian service in whatever area of life they are involved. We are available for baptisms, weddings and funerals and are happy to discuss possibilities for these, and are keen for our church building to be used for community activities.
Local clergy present Collective Worship each week in school. Spiritual, social and cultural awareness is developed through Christian teachings and services for the community are led by pupils in church each term.
