Welcome to the benefices of Pockington Wold and Londesborough Wold, which are situated in the beautiful rural setting of The Yorkshire Wolds; attracting tourists for walking and cycling, the history and access to the east coast resorts. Pocklington, a large market town with independent shops and boutiques, an Arts Centre and renowned gardens at Burnby Hall, offers something for everyone. The surrounding villages are served by local shops, village halls and pubs, and are traditional farming communities. The community is increasing in size with areas of new housing development.
The large flexible space within Pocklington church lends its self to offer hospitality and use by various groups and for a variety of regular events, concerts and festivals. Further development and facilities are planned. Elsewhere, the church communities are an active part of village life and the upkeep and future development of the church buildings to provide toilets and flexible meeting space are linked to local events and introductions of new styles of worship. The churches try to capitalise on the tourist opportunities in the area and churches are open for visitors.
Members of the churches attended the Diocesan programme of LYCIG (Leading Your Church into Growth) in September 2016, and would love to develop this further.

Unfortunately it is not always straightforward for clergy from overseas to be appointed to posts in the Church of England. The policy of the UK Border Agency is that normally the organisation making an appointment has been able to prove that it is impossible to appoint a person who is a national of a European Economic Area country, before a visa giving permission to work will be issued to a person who comes from elsewhere.
