Church of England Diocese of Durham St. Helen Auckland

About Us

Traditional Anglo-Catholic parish with a friendly and welcoming congregation of all ages. S. Helen's is a wonderful medieval building. Children and young families are welcome and we provide a creche and children's club every week. We have a small and committed choir who practice each week and are always looking out for new members. The New English Hymnal is used and an anthem sung each week. A full liturgical calendar is observed, along with a daily mass and offices.

One of our strenths is a full and active social life and good pastoral care of our people. Our Beavers, Cubs and Scounts have a good membership and active progammes. Jolly Tots and Busy Bees meet weekly and Messy Church meets the third Saturday of each month at 11.30am. Every Wednesday a light Lunch is served and on Thursday breakfast and coffee and cake.

The Parish is a member of Forward in Faith and is staffed by priests of The Society and The Society of the Holy Cross (SSC). Follow us on FaceBook.
