Welcome to St. Matthew and St. Luke's Church

St. Matthew and St. Luke's is an active, friendly and growing church catering for all ages. The focal point for the life of our church community is Sunday Worship.

If you are not used to attending church services, or it has been some time since you have attended, we hope we can encourage you to be confident that you will be made to feel welcome. We have all been newcomers at some time and know how you feel.


Our mission statement is - 

"To communicate to everyone that God loves us and we all have a place in his family."



We understand that people are naturally worried about the Covid-19 pandemic and it's transmission.

Here at St. Matthew and St Luke's we are constantly monitoring our practices and ensuring that we comply with the guidance from the Church of England which can be found here


St. Matthew and St. Luke's takes its responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people and vulnerable adults very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Durham to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
