• Hello and welcome to the Christian community within the

    Parish of Jarrow and Simonside 

    We, the Parish of Jarrow and Simonside, will share our faith, hope and love in God with all,  through our worship, witness and service.

                    Anyone is welcome to come and join with our worship in any of our four      wonderful churches spread around the town of Jarrow and of Simonside, South Shields.

    We are committed, with the Diocese of Durham,
    blessing our communities in Jesus name.

    The Parish of Jarrow and Simonside covers much of the town of Jarrow, a historic town in South Tyneside in the north-east of England and the estate of Simonside in South Shields.    The parish is part of the Deanery of Jarrow in the Church of England's Diocese of Durham.

    The parish comprises four churches: St Simons, 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.
