St Mary’s Church Whickham CoE is a parish within the Diocese of Durham. We serve the people of Whickham in a variety of ways, blessing our community in the name of Jesus for the transformation of all. We are of the community, for the good of the community.


We engage with people in differing contexts, some of which are traditionally associated with church life, others excitingly new, and one or two that might even surprise you. We have been at the heart of Whickham for nine hundred years. We believe our Christian Faith offers hope for the world because God sent his only son to redeem humankind. Here you will find out who we are, how we worship and work. As followers of Jesus we are committed to sharing our faith that all might find abundant life.
