Church of England Diocese of Durham Shotton

St Saviour's

Saint Saviour's is the Parish Church for Shotton Colliery. We have been part of the community since 1854, meeting to worship Jesus every week.

We have an active Church Lads and Church Girls Brigade, which meets on a Monday’s 6-7pm in the Jack Turnbull Hall, next door to the church. Young people aged 5 -18 are welcome to join.

The church holds services in Croft House residential care home in Shotton.

Working in partnership with Shotton Community Centre, we provide activities for children and families throughout the year, especially in school holidays.

The parish of Shotton is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer (PSO) . The Diocese of Durham’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor ( DSO) Beth Miller, who advises our PSO. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm, please contact the DSO. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police or your local authority Childrens and Adult Services, or ring 999. 

We hope to see you soon – please pop in or call Revd Muriel Peters on 07971577715
