Who We Are

A very warm welcome to the Parish of Monkwearmouth - three churches in one Parish (St.Peter's, St. Andrew's and All Saints')

Whether you are needing specific information or merely browsing we hope that you will find this new website useful and user-friendly and are able to find the answers you are looking for quickly and effectively. We are still busy revamping and adding information to the site so be sure to come back and check regularly to see what we've added.

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!

Our Churches


St. Andrew's Church

St. Andrew's was built in 1907. A masterpiece of design by Edward Schroeder Prior, it has earned the title of "Cathedral of the Art and Crafts Movement." 

Check out the latest update on conservation work carried out on the building.


St. Peter's Church

St. Peter's was built in 674AD by Benedict Biscop and is one of the oldest churches in Britain where Christians have gathered to worship for more than 1300 years. It was also Venerable Bede's home from the age of 7.


All Saints' Church

All Saints' was built in 1849 five years after the Parish of All Saints' was formed to provide additional accommodation when St. Peter's had no free seats. It is renowned as the birthplace of the British Pentecostal movement.
