Church of England Diocese of Durham Upper Skerne

About Us

The church stands on the village green and is a Grade II listed building which dates back to 1145 A.D. The church was extended with a North Aisle and Vestry in the late 19th century. One notable feature is the `keyhole' arch which separates the nave for the chancel. Under the chancel floor is a family vault. Booklets about this and another booklet giving a more detailed history of the church are available in church. There is normally a Flower Festival on the weekend nearest to the patronal festival, 22nd July.

To enquire about baptisms and weddings, please come along to our vestry hour, from 5.30pm -6.30pm on Wednesdays. This will alternate between St Edmund’s in Sedgefield and St Mary Magdalene’s in Trimdon Village.
