Planned Giving means regular giving, giving the same amount each week or month by Standing Order or the Envelope Scheme. Regular giving helps us to take stock, ask ourselves how important God and the church are in our lives, and how we reflect that in what we plan to give. The method through which you choose to give is exactly that – your choice, whichever works best for you.

Through the envelope scheme, individuals receive a numbered envelope for each week of the year, although this can be quite labour intensive and churches still have to count each donation at the end of services.

Choosing to give by Standing Order allows the same advantage to churches of planned income, and also reduces administration and cost.


Our award-winning churchyard is a place of peace and rest for the living and those who have passed on. We invite visitors to enjoy the tranquillity.

The Churchyard is maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers who attend organised events led by Peter Green. If you wish to be part of the team please contact:

Water is supplied for your use and bins are placed to the rear of the church. We have no facility for composting; therefore, we ask that all waste is put into the green bin.

Remembrance Sunday

Flowers and Brasses

Our Church is warm and welcoming to visitors with fresh flowers throughout the year.

The beautiful fresh flower displays and shining brasses are a joy to see for both regulars and visitors. This is down to a group of volunteers who come in on a rota basis to arrange and polish. All the volunteers have different styles and it is wonderful to see the variety of flowers. Many of the flower arrangers have no formal training, just an interest in flowers or want to help in making our church look loved and cared for.

The brass collection plates, vases and plaques etc., are polished and buffed regularly and we are very grateful to all who help on these rotas, not all of whom attend church.

If anyone would like to help out, please do not hesitate to contact us, we would be happy to answer any of your questions.

Mission to Seafarers

Steve Percival is currently studying with the York School of Ministry to become a Reader at our church. Steve is also a member of the Mission to Seafarers Humber Ports chaplaincy team. The Mission to Seafarers is a charity which aims to provide practical help and emotional assistance to seafarers globally.


There are over 1.5 million seafarers (men and women) who risk their lives every day and spend prolonged periods away from their families due to the various demands of their livelihood. Seafarers make a vital contribution to an industry which is a fundamental part of our global economy. 


Day and night for 365 days per year, the Mission is on call providing help for seafarers and their loved ones in over 200 ports around the world.


One way in which our church and the wider community helps is by knitting woolly hats for seafarers. Often coming from warm climates, seafarers appreciate the warmth of a woolly hat when faced with cold or freezing climates. Woolly hats are also tangible gifts, knitted with love by you and given directly to seafarers, who are always very grateful for these personal and practical gifts.


If you would like to help, please contact Steve directly:

Friends of Wilberfoss Church 

The Parochial Church Council is responsible for the care and maintenance of the church and takes its responsibilities very seriously. We realise the importance of your Parish Church and what it means to you. Keeping a church in tip top condition requires generosity along with the love and dedication of a support network.  Our church is valued by the community not just as a place of worship and prayer but as a place for celebration and friendship, a place where special life events take place. Happy times, baptism, confirmation, weddings, blessings and sad reflective times of funerals and remembrance.

We believe that if we lose our Parish Church we would take away the heart of our community. You can help. We invite you to dedicate a day special to you. For a contribution of £50 per year (less than a £1 a week) your special memory can be recorded in the Friends of Wilberfoss Book which is on display in Church. Perhaps you wish to remember a loved one, celebrate a birth of a grandchild or celebrate an anniversary.  Any message or thanksgiving you would like can be recorded in relation to that date and will be kept in a special Friends of Wilberfoss Church Book on display in Church. (Please note that you can become a Friend and Sponsor a Day without having an inscription or public record of your gift is you would prefer).
