Welcome to the Parish of Jarrow

  • Hello and welcome to the Christian community within the Parish of Jarrow

    We, the Parish of Jarrow, will share our faith, hope and love in God with all, 

     through our worship, witness and service.

    Anyone is welcome to come in an join with our worship in our three wonderfull churches spread around the town of Jarrow.


    We are committed, with the Diocese of Durham,

    The Parish of Jarrow (Team Ministry) covers much of the town of Jarrow, a historic town in South Tyneside in the north-east of England.    The parish is part of the Deanery of Jarrow in the Church of England's Diocese of Durham.

    The parish comprises three churches: St Peter's, St John the Baptist, and St Paul's - which was home to the Venerable Bede and formed one half of the twin monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow. You can find out more about the monastery by viewing the St Paul's website http://stpaulschurchjarrow.com/
