Family Activity Sheets
Bishop Paul has given us permission to suspend Public Worship in our church buildings

If you or anyone you know could use some friendly support, please text or call our Lockdown Helpline: 07306 168 951.
And if you require a Family Hamper or Emergency Food Parcel while our buidings are closed, please call the Key 2 Life Foodbank direct on 07833614393 to arrange for delivery.

The parish comprises four churches: St Simons, St Peter's, St John the Baptist, and St Paul's - which was home to the Venerable Bede and formed one half of the twin monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow.
