St Peter the Apostle Church is situated in the village of Byers Green approximately 12 miles south-west of the city of Durham. St Peter's is the only surviving church in the parish of Byers Green which also includes Newfield, Todhills and Binchester. Byers Green is a small rural parish lying between Bishop Auckland, Willington and Spennymoor, and was a coal mining area until the early 20th century.
Our churchmanship could be described as 'middle of the road' Anglican in our style of worship in that our main Sunday morning service is a Common Worship Holy Communion. However, in terms of music we draw upon both traditional and contemporary hymns and songs and we are beginning to develop all-age services on special occasions such as Mothering Sunday and Harvest. We have also started a monthly All Age Café Church on the 2nd Saturday of the month. To help develop our personal relationships with God we have a monthly service of Meditation on the last Wednesday of every month between Easter and Christmas.
For more information on specific services please see the 'Services' and 'Café Church' pages on this website.
Church opening hours
We try to keep the church open during the day so that all are welcome to visit the building and spend time in quiet prayer and reflection.
