The United Benefice of Hunwick and Willington

In 2015, the parish of Hunwick joined with the parish of Willington and Sunnybrow. The churches are just over 3 miles apart but serve different communities. Hunwick is a small rural village and Willington is larger and more of a commercial centre. Both locations have their roots in the coal mining industry which closed down in the 1960s and 1970s. St Paul's Church in Hunwick has a tradition of Anglo-Catholic worship in a disciplined but modern style whilst St Stephen's is less traditional and more relaxed in its worship style.
