About Us

The Church of St Nicholas lies at the heart of West Tanfield on an outcrop above the River Ure. With a choir, organ and bellringing team, this is very sonorous church which loves to welcome newcomers and visitors alike.

Our usual pattern of services is Holy Communion at 10.45am on the 1st and 4th Sunday of the month, a Family Service at 9,30am on the 2nd Sunday, and Evensong on the 3rd Sunday of the month (at 4pm in winter months and 6.30pm in the summer).

Children and staff from St Nicholas C.E. Primary School in the village help lead our monthly Family Service which is suitable for all ages, not just children!
