Welcome to our Church


Welcome to this site for the Church of St Mary Magdalene, Hayton. Our church building stands at the centre of the village, next to Hayton C.of E. School, and serves the wider parish of Hayton which includes the settlements of How Mill, Fenton, Faugh and Edmund Castle. We are part of a benefice known as the Eden, Gelt and Irthing Team, which consists of ten parishes. As a Team Vicar I have oversight of six of these parishes.


At Hayton Church we describe our aim as ‘welcoming all to experience, show and share God’s love.’  We believe that God’s love, as seen in Jesus, is for everyone. We also believe that we need each other if we are to grow in understanding and responding to the goodness of God. Whatever has brought you to visit this website today I hope you find it helpful. You are always welcome to get in touch with me if you would like a conversation about faith or what the church offers or believes. You are most welcome to visit us by coming to any of our services or by visiting our church which is open every day. Thank you for your interest.


Best wishes,

Edward Johnsen
