About Us

St Martin’s seeks God’s vision for the ministry here in Seamer, Crossgates and Irton. We are seeking to share the message of Jesus with our community because Jesus makes the difference! We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and came to transform and open the way so that we can live knowing the one true God on earth now and this is reflected in our worship. We preach the Bible and move in the power of His Spirit. There are many social events to join in with and also Small Groups which meet twice a month for discipleship, fellowship and mission. We take prayer seriously, with many opportunities for prayer ministry and 7.30pm every Wednesday we meet to pray.
St Martin’s is an idyllic church in the village of Seamer, just outside of Scarborough in North Yorkshire. We are only a few minutes drive from the local beaches, and a slightly longer drive into the North York Moors, along with all the places of interest found in the area. We are a sociable church, with regular Men’s and Women’s Fellowship groups, coffee mornings and house-groups. See the Services and Events page for more information on current or upcoming months.
