Who we are

We meet together at Park View School (North Lodge) near Birtley every Sunday at 10.30am.

We love Jesus, we love Chester-le-Street and the surrounding region, and we believe that God is on the move in the North East of England. We’re a community of people of all ages and from all walks of life who want to join God with what He is doing. We’d love for you to join us on our adventure with Him!

We are also proud to be a part of the Regions Beyond family of churches, which stretches across the globe.

“Revelling in Jesus, restoring lives, reviving communities”

Think of thscene from James and the Giant Peach when James spills the magic beans (although theylook a bit more like toxic luminescent caterpillars in the film!) and he frantically tries to grabthem, but as he’s doing so, they quickly disappear into…


We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view.
