Welcome to our website.

    Parish Values
    *  Reaching out with God's love
    *  Serving the People of Chester-le-Street
    *  Doing everything for Jesus
    There has been a Christian worshipping community here since 883AD, when monks from Lindisfarne, bearing the body of Saint Cuthbert built a shrine which became, for more than a century, the Cathedral of the Kingdom of Northumbria. It was here that the Gospels were first translated into Saxon English and a facsimile of the Lindisfarne Gospels can be seen at the Parish Church.
