Welcome to St Cuthberts Ormesby
Always know you will be very welcome and we hope that you find us open and friendly people who can provide you with relevance and meaning in your daily life. There has been a church here for over a 1000 years and we want St Cuthbert’s Church to be here for all future generations.
We have just paid £215,000 for a new roof and we need to urgently raise funds for restoration work on the tower, an internal re-ordering and a new lighting scheme.
Weʼre raising £5,000, please help us to help you by donating – click on the logo below.
Building the Church Building the Kingdom
To proclaim Christ in our worship and in our community and make disciples of all generations
To honour predecessors killed in the First World War, groups of church bell-ringers are ringing a full peal on the centenary of each of the servicemen’s deaths. Two Ormesby ringers, Gunner William Hansell and Private Frank Brown, were killed in the First World War on 28th September 1918 and 28th October 1918 respectively.
A group of bell-ringers from the Cleveland and North Yorkshire branch of the Yorkshire Association of Change Ringers are going to ring a quarter peal at 6pm on Friday 28th September and a full peal on Sunday 28th October to honour the sacrifice these men gave for their country. The quarter peal takes 45-50 minutes on the 8 bells at St Cuthbert’s and the full peal can last up to 3.5 hours as it involves over 5000 changes in the order the bells are rung.
The first peal took place in 2015, at St Mary’s, Whitby and the last will be at St Cuthbert’s, Ormesby, on 28 October 2018, in memory of Private Frank Brown, of the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, who died, aged 20, just before the Armistice.
St Cuthbert, Ormesby will be holding a Patronal Festival over the weekend of 8th to 10th June 2018. All are welcome, particularly Teddy Bears.
Unfortunately the Church Tower is unsuitable for mounting a bungee rope so we will have a zip wire Teddy Bear Death Slide instead.
St Cuthberts Ormesby PCC and congregation would like to thank the following in proving financial support for roof repairs and recovering the roof in Stainless Steel. It should keep us water tight for at least another generation.
