Welcome to St James Church and thanks for finding us! We are a small, friendly church in Burnopfield, a village in County Durham.
We have a strong tradition of prayerful worship and community service, as well as playing a key role in the life of the village, which is about ten miles west of Newcastle upon Tyne.
You are assured of a warm welcome, both at our regular services and also at our special services held to mark Christmas, Easter and the other significant events in the church calendar. We also plan a number of community-based events throughout the year.
Our regular services are published on this site, but they are currently in abeyance due to the Covid-19 pandemic. For details of worship and prayer during this time, please click on the Worship During Covid-19 Update page.
