About Us

Oxclose Church serves the Villages of Oxclose, Blackfell, Ayton, and Lambton in Washington New Town.  Formerly an 'Ecumenical' Church, it is now an Anglican Church in the Diocese of Durham.  Oxclose is  a 'Resourcing Church' - funded and equipped by the Church of England to focus on Mission - sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ in a new and vibrant way.   We have a real heart for the children and young families in the villages that we serve - we have excellent links with all our local primary schools, and we run an amazing Toddler Group.  We call our Sunday Service Worship2gether - because we want everyone to feel welcome at Oxclose Church.
