St. Peter's School Visits


Christmas is for many a busy time of year filled with the joys of carol singing, presents and celebrations with family and friends.  For others, Christmas can be a lonely time shaped by sadness and memories.

Christmas can also be a time to pause and reflect.  In fact, that's one of the ways we can unwrap the true gifts of Christmas - a moment of peace in the busyness, a breakthrough of hope in our sadness or a rediscovery of love in a relationship that has become stressed.

    #GodWithUs: Your Christmas Journey seeks to help you to explore what the Christmas story might mean in your life.  The constant refrain of Christmas, in carols and readings is that God is with us. In whatever situations you find yourself this Christmas,  God is with you - you need only to turn to him and ask to know his presence.

    My prayer is that these reflections help you unwrap in your own life, God's gifts of peace, hope and love.  May your Christmas journey lead you closer, not just to the heart of Christmas, but to the person of Jesus, whose birth we celebrate in this wonderful season.

 Three churches, one Parish - all you ever wanted to know about St. Andrew's, St. Peter's and All Saints...

​​​​A very warm welcome to the Parish of Monkwearmouth

Whether you are needing specific information or merely browsing we hope that you will find this website useful and user-friendly and able to find the answers you are looking for quickly and effectively.


As a group of three churches in the "Church of England" tradition we are a bunch of ordinary people who meet each week to give thanks to God, find peace and strength in him and do our best to serve the needs of those around us in our daily lives.

As it happens each of our three churches has an especially unusual and remarkable story to tell and each one draws visitors from this country and from abroad  We'd certainly be delighted to tell you more if you are interested.

But most importantly we are members of  God's worldwide family living in the strength and love of Jesus Christ in our particular corner of north east Sunderland.

So whether you are wanting to book a wedding or a baptism, looking for a church to join or simply wanting to ask questions about life, God and the universe we hope you will find a helpful start here. If you would like to know more please don't hesitate to ask!
