Getting here

St John's has been well know since medieval times as it can be seen for miles around situated over 600 feet up on top of the ridge south of Spennymoor.

In our services we mix the ancient with the modern and these vary from 8am Holy Communion using the Book of Common Prayer through to a 'Café' style Church on the 2nd Sunday each month.

Our family service, on the 4th Sunday of each month, is growing and we welcome everyone to come and get involved, and join in the fun! There are arts and crafts and activities throughout the service and these activities are also now being run every week


Look out on our notice board for other activities for children that are held during the year.

Our church is currently in interregnum (without a vicar); therefore please contact the following for information and enquiries
