The Church of St John the Baptist at Heck

The church at Heck was established when the vicar of Hensall, Rev E H Bryan, felt that Hensall church did not fulfill his Anglo-Catholic beliefs. He was heavily influenced by the "Oxford Movement" which sought to rediscover the catholic practices of the Church of England.

The church at Heck is not a parish church but is rather a Chapel of Ease for the Church at Hensall. The church was re-ordered within the last ten years to include a kitchen and toilet, as well as flexible seating. It has a light and colourful aspect, and is perfect for reflective worship. It is an ideal building to use for individual and parish retreats/quiet days. If you are interested in using Heck church, please contact the rector in the first instance.
