St. Mary's Church is Emmerdale's village church, located on the site of the old School House on Church Lane.

The original church claims to have been built in Viking times, serving the parish of Beckindale for centuries.

In June 1882, the church was gutted by fire, started by a local choirboy. The church once again suffered a fire in 2002, this time burnt down by local vet Zoe Tate who was sectioned under the mental health act following the incident.

It was decided not to rebuild the church this time and instead its location was changed to the old village school and former tea room buildings.

In late 2008, St. Mary's was under threat of closure due to the falling number of parishioners attending services. The community rallied round to stop this and formed a choir and entered into a regional competition in the hope that winning would save the church. The church was saved when the new owners of Home Farm, the Wylde's bought the church for £500,000 and gifted it to the community.

The church has a blog and so, presumably, a website too.
