All Saints Church

Our Churchwardens are Mrs Margaret Trowbridge and Mr David Theakstone.

Our priest in charge, the Reverend Malcolm Wainwright is also supported by local retired clergy as needed, and a variety of talented organists except on the third Sunday of each month where we have a spoken Holy Communion service without hymns.

We have a family focussed , less formal service once a month followed by a short Communion service, and Evensong using the Book of Common Prayer on the first Sunday of each month.

There is a monthly Service held in the Village Hall in Linton on Ouse. The calendar gives details of Services and times. The Newton Singers, an all female choir which performs across the locality sing with us several occasions during the year.

If anyone is interested in forming a choir at Linton, please let the Reverend Wainwright know,


We have a particularly full church on Remembrance Sunday, when we join with the RAF base from Linton on Ouse, at our annual Christingle and Nativity services, as well as at busy Festivals like Easter and Christmas.

We also hold special services where local schools and people from the wider community join us, for example, the Diamond Jubilee, celebration of the Northern Saints and Songs of Praise.

All Saints Church originated in the 12th Century, the earliest Rector was recorded in 1229, and much of it was rebuilt in the 19th Century, when the lovely slender spire was also added. The spire is visible for miles around the Vale of York has been a talking point recently as it was beautifully illuminated in a range of different colours for All Saints Day, and then over the Christmas period courtesy of Neil Peers from Newton, supported by Chauvet Lighting in Nottingham and John Watson of Creative Lighting Design.
