Church of England Diocese of Durham West Rainton


Sundays 10.45am - a short service during these pandemic times but normally around 90minutes. No booking needed. This is a Eucharistic (Communion) service held in a socially-distanced manner! You are also very welcome to attend without taking Communion.

Getting here

Simply drive into West Rainton. The Church is totally visible in a large churchyard. If visiting the Church or Churchyard it is best to park along the 'top road (the old Durham Road)' and walk through the churchyard. If you have items to drop off then park on the other side on the main street (South Street/ North Street) being careful to leave room for buses etc. along the main street.

If you have a wheelchair it is normally easier to park on the top road because the path through the churchyard is easy going. The other side of church has a section of gravel.

The number 20 bus links us with Durham, Houghton le spring and Sunderland.
