Church of England Diocese of Durham Heworth

St Marys Heworth

St Mary’s is the parish church for Heworth, Pelaw, Bill Quay and Wardley, to the east of Gateshead (just opposite Heworth Metro). We are a lively and loving community. We stand in the central and liberal tradition of Anglican worship and life. Through pastoral care and mission projects, we seek to reflect the compassion of Jesus for people of all ages, abilities and sexualities. We welcome visitors and newcomers alike. We would love for you to join us in worship, fellowship or action.  Visit our website at 


The parish of St Mary's 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 page contains vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser (DSA), who advises 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.
