Church of England Diocese of Newcastle Whorlton

St John's, Whorlton

Welcome! St John's Church lies in the Anglican diocese of Newcastle and is the parish church for the community of Whorlton and Westerhope, which means we are here to serve God and every member of our local community: your church, here for you. The church, and its congregation, has been a centre of worship and of service to the local community since 1866. It is our spiritual home – and whether you're a long term local, or newly moved into the area we hope it might become yours, too. Whoever you are, and whatever your position or perspective, you'll find a welcome here.

You can find us near the junction of Stamfordham Road and North Walbottle Road (NE5 1NN). Don't let Google fool you - we're not the village near Barnard Castle (nor the church in town on Grainger Street)!

Safeguarding - to read how we keep St John's a safe place for everyone use the Safeguarding tab on the left-hand side of the screen.
