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.
Building the Church Building the Kingdom
To proclaim Christ in our worship and in our community and make disciples of all generations
A warm St Cuthbert's welcome still awaits you, although no refreshments can be provided at the end of the service, and we can no longer sing hymns during the services.
We continue to work with the Government and Church of England Covid-19 guidance in making the church environment as safe as possible and to protect everyone.
- Face coverings are mandatory in places of worship unless you have a legitimate exemptions for health, or where communication is impeded when wearing a mask, or are a bride and groom and those officiating at a wedding.
- On entering and exiting St Cuthbert's everyone is asked to use the hand sanitiser provided in the entrance porch.
- Please always keep to the Government physical (social) distancing guidelines while inside and outside the church. Remember this is still 2 metres without some additional control measures like a face covering.
To maintain physical distancing at the end of the service please follow the one-way system while maintaining physical (social) distancing.

Remembrance Sunday, 8th November 2020.
In this very strange year, due to Covid-19 restrictions on numbers and social distancing in the church yard there will be no ceremony at the War Memorial this year. The Remembrance Service will take place in church with our normal Sunday congregation and invited guests only. We are very sorry that we cannot make it more widely open to the public this year. Hopefully next year we can have a more normal Remembrance Sunday.
On the 29th November (Advent Sunday), The Revd Dr Amanda Bloor, Archdeacon of Cleveland
The Most Reverend Stephen Cottrell will be enthroned as the 98th Archbishop of York at a service of Evensong at 4.00pm on Sunday 18 October at York Minster.
It will take place on the Feast Day of St Luke, Apostle and Evangelist.
Much of the service will be sung by the adult singers of the Minster Choir and there will be readings, music and prayers. Elements of the service will be based on previous historic enthronements and Archbishop Stephen will take his oath on the York Gospels.
