Church of England Diocese of Durham Byers Green

About Us

St Peter's Church has a small but growing and very friendly congregation and serves the villages of Byers Green, Newfield, Binchester as well as Todhills.  Our regular Sunday morning service is Common Worship Communion at 9.15 am at which we use both traditional and contemporary music.  Afterwards we serve refreshments at the back of church as a way of helping us to get to know one another better and to welcome newcomers and visitors.  We provide facilities for young children at the back of church and all children are most welcome.

Between Easter and Christmas we hold a monthly Meditation Service in Church on the last Wednesday of the month at 7 pm to which everyone is invited, even if you do not normally attend a church.  We also have special services during the year especially during Holy Week.  For more details of these please see the Services and Events page.

We hold regular social events in the Church Hall.  These include a weekly coffee morning on Wednesday mornings between 10 am and 12 noon.  We also have monthly social evenings on Tuesdays and these range from Quiz and Film Nights to pudding nights and talks given on interesting topics.  For more information of these please see the Services and Events page.

We are always delighted to meet newcomers and visitors and also we welcome those who would like to get married here (subject to the usual legal requirements) or bring children or themselves for baptism.
