We are supporting the local response, co-ordinated by Stockton Borough Council, to those in need during this period.

Any tins of fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, beans, soup, puddings and custards plus preserves, cereals, rice, pasta sauces and pasta, etc can be left in the collection box inside the church gates, and will be collected regularly.

There has been a church in Elton for around 900 years and St John's is a Grade II listed building, due to its historic fabric and architectural interest as a sympathetic C19 rebuild of a C12-C13 Church.

It is a caring community of faith and love with Christ at its centre.

The Parish is numerically small in population but geographically large; however, there is a congregation of around 30 each week, drawn from Elton and surrounding areas including Fairfield, Hartburn, Eaglescliffe and Stockton, who appreciate the chance to worship in a village church using the traditional language of the Book of Common Prayer.

You would be made most welcome to any or all of our services and events – we would love to see you! This is your Church :-)


The parish of Elton 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. Further details are on the Safeguarding tab on this site.
