The Parish of Ponteland

Welcome to The Parish of Ponteland

Drive north west from Newcastle upon Tyne, past the airport, into Northumberland, and you come into Ponteland. Across the bridge, looking beautiful across Coates’ Green, is the church of St Mary the Virgin. If you continue north and then turn left along lanes that get smaller and smaller, Holy Saviour, Milbourne, is surrounded by beautiful countryside. But our churches are more than just beautiful buildings – they are living communities. Regular worship, on Sunday and during the week, brings together a diverse community – we aim for worship done well, with good music and thoughtful preaching.

There are opportunities to study, opportunities for friendship - coffee mornings and social events. We welcome baptisms, weddings and funerals – click on the Worship tab for more details, seeking to serve our community, and beyond.

We take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously - click here for more details.

We try and do all this in the name of Jesus, to welcome all in God’s name. To find out more about Jesus and the Christian faith please click here. Please explore this website, and find out more of the opportunities for you.
