The Christian heritage of Ryedale has developed
steadily for nearly 2000 years, and is still doing so. The
visitor can see many signs of this growth and evolution amongst
the hills and valleys of the area. We hope that this site will
help to show how events in the local history of Christianity fit
into the wider historical pattern and how, in a modest way, the
Christian life of this area helped to make people aware of the
love and forgiveness of God.
There is much to explore and more detailed information can be found at all the main sites and in libraries. This is only a starting point, but we hope it will add to your appreciation of Ryedale's Christian Heritage.
The Christian Heritage story is ongoing, and in the last thirty years great strides have been taken in the way that Christian Traditions in the area work together. Today Christians in Ryedale are trying to work to the principle that:
WE SHOULD NOT WORK SEPARATELY WHEN
WE CAN WORK TOGETHER
