During this time of Social Isolation we have cancelled our Coffee Mornings and other events.


Holy Trinity Church at Eggleston will be open for the next few days for those wishing to pray in church.

9th April 2021


Here is a collage of  Easter Cards/Greetings cards using local artist Michael Horner's paintings/photograph which are being sold in aid of Holy Trinity Church's Roof Appeal

All these will be in A5 with envelopes.

Four of the cards will be £1.50 each. The photo of the signpost on the footpath in Eggleston, and the sheep, are going on sale very soon at Hill Top shop behind the Moorcock in Eggleston and as those two designs are a slightly smaller size they are  £1.20 each.

All packs of cards are £4.00 for packs of 5.

Pre-orders are being taken and left at the shop.

The wording is 'Sending wishes for a happy Easter' and some blank cards will be published in a number of designs in the future.


while keeping our Social Distance

In the recent past, the Churches in Teesdale have offered Friday soup lunches to raise funds to support the work of Christian Aid.

This year, we can’t meet to serve food in this way but we know that the people we have supported through Christian Aid in Africa and Asia are in need just as much as ever.

So this year we invite you to enjoy your Friday soup at home and join us in making a donation to Christian Aid.

Donations to Christian Aid can be made online via the dedicated Teesdale Christian Aid page:

Donations can be also made by phone directly to Christian Aid on 08080 006 006

Thank You.

On Sunday 9th August the 175th Anniversary

of  St James the Less Church was celebrated.

The hope is that when the public health concerns allow, a further  and larger celebration will be held.
