The Parish of Ponteland

Welcome to The Parish of Ponteland

The Church of England has made the very difficult decision to suspend all public worship with immediate effect in order to help control the spread of COVID-19.

All regular Services at St. Mary’s and Holy Saviour have therefore ceased. The church buildings are now closed and will not be accessible until further notice.

Please click here for the latest announcement from Revd Paul and here for the letter to the Electoral Roll, which is being distributed to our congregation via email and post.

Generous Giving

In these very uncertain times we are extremely grateful to those who continue to give so sacrificially to the Parish. If anyone who normally gives their offering by the plate (envelope or cash) would like to pay directly through their bank, our Treasurer Clive Jordan, would be pleased to advise. He can be contacted via e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or telephone 01661 598005.  Please otherwise continue to utilise your weekly envelope and put to one side for the happy day when we return to normal.

On a personal note I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your continued support, generosity and loyalty to our parish and community. Please be assured of my prayers.

Reverend Paul T Allinson. Vicar of Ponteland
