Christ the King

Welcome to Christ the King Bowburn. I hope you find the information you need on this site. If you need further information we can be found on social media (Facebook, Twitter) or please contact us via this site or email.

Here at Christ the King the celebration of the Mass (Eucharist or Holy Communion) is at the centre of our worshipping life both on Sundays and in the week. It is during the communion service that we are given time to spend sitting with Jesus and praising Him through song and listen to the readings about his life and ministry. It is also opportunity for us to come face to face with Jesus in the sacrament of communion when we receive the body and blood of Jesus in the form of bread and wine.

Morning or Evening Prayer is also said daily to which all are welcome to join in. These services tend to be a quieter time of meditation and prayer allowing us to start our day by offering it to God and then thank Him at the end of the day for walking with us.

The parish of Cassop-cum-Quarrington 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(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Durham’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
