Welcome to the parish Church of St Mary's, Nunthorpe,
where you can be sure of a warm welcome.
The parish of Nunthorpe is situated on the southern edge of Teesside, in the Diocese of York. It is a largely residential community of over 9,000 people straddling the boundary of two local authorities: Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland. It marks the transition from the urban settlement of Middlesbrough to the rural and moorland areas to the south.
The church, situated on the south edge of Nunthorpe, towards Great Ayton and Stokesley, has a spectacular view of the Cleveland Hills, including Roseberry Topping, and the North Yorks Moors, making it a beautiful venue for weddings.
St Mary's church lies within a growing community of active people and we like to think there is something for everyone.
