We have four congregations that use our two church buildings on a Sunday including a Youth Group called SixFortySeven. Some are more traditional, some modern and free, some are joint services and some individual to the parish church. Our worship is evolving all the time as our culture changes.

If you want to ask which service to try first you can always ring the Revd Mark Worthington to check (0191 487 6490).

Other Services


This youth group (6.47/sixfortyseven/ etc) meets on Sunday nights at St Ninian’s Church at 6.47. It is a mixture of ridiculous games, food, chat, activities, worship, teaching, and anything else we can come up with. Teenagers come from different churches, parishes and no church contact. We have had some tremendous residentials and have strong friendship bonds.

Look out for new information or contact our Youth Worker ‘Magic’ Mark  (07891128707).
