By virtue of its size, its imposing position and its antiquity, St. Andrew's is very much cathedral-like in character and provides a beautiful medieval focus for the worship of God, allowing the soul to rest from day-to-day bustle and turmoil to reflect and pray, conscious of continuous worship for almost 800 years in this wonderful building. St. Andrew's stands for the permanence and solidity of the Christian faith, whilst being at the same time a friendly and welcoming place, which appeals to people from all walks of life.

It is fortunate, too, in having one of the largest and finest pipe organs in County Durham, which helps to enhance the beauty and spirituality of the services through music. The church is also a much appreciated concert venue.

The beauty of St. Andrew's makes it a favourite place for weddings in the region: this provides a valuable spiritual contact with young couples being married, many of whom do not regularly attend church, an opportunity to lead them closer to God and cement their relationship with the church, baptising their children and at other times, such as at the death of relatives or other times of trouble, serving as a loved and approachable solace.
