St Mary the Virgin, Whickham

  • Welcome to our website and thank you for taking a little time to learn more about us.

    We are part of the world wide Anglican Communion within the Church of England diocese of Durham.

    Our building is 900 years old and we form part of an unbroken chain of Christian worship in Whickham. We are a church prepared to move forward; seeking new opportunities to nurture discipleship in the present for the future.  We continue to be a relevant Christian presence, witnessing and serving a community of over 14,000 people. You will find many traditional things in our parish life, and along side them you will find new and exciting projects; many of which may just surprise you! 

    We hope you enjoy visiting our website.  If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, we would be delighted to hear from you.                                                                              

     Barry Abbott, Rector of Whickham
