At Pentecost 2017, we formed a partnership of parishes called ‘Finchale Partnership’.  This is named after the 12th century Benedictine Priory on the banks of the River Wear.  Other parishes in our partnership are in Durham City, Langley Moor, Sedgefield, Coxhoe and Trimdon.

Whether you are a parishioner, a visitor or simply curious about us, we hope that you find everything you need to know within these pages.

For mass times please see the newsletter. Should you need any further information please contact our parish office.
