St. John's Church serves the parish of Shotley in the Diocese of Newcastle and the county of Northumberland. It is a rural parish and very lively with a thriving congregation and well used Church Hall which, with its full catering kitchen and fully licensed bar is ideal for weddings and other parties.
South of the Tyne and north of the river Derwent, the church of St John, built of local stone, was consecrated as a Chapel-of-Ease in 1837 to replace the older chapel of St Andrew on Greymare Hill. This chapel is now in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
St John’s subsequently became a parish church in its own right. The church is usually open to visitors and all are welcome to join our worship.

Eucharist with hymns
This is the main service at St John's each Sunday. The service is Common Worship Order 1 in contemporary language, The younger members of the community meet in the Church hall for the earlier part of the service. There is Sunday school for the younger members and 'The Edge' for those a little older. On the the first Sunday of the month we have a more informal Eucharist with our music group rather than the organ and more contribution from our younger members who are with the rest of us in church for the whole service.
Every Sunday at 10:30 AM for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
