St Paul’s Church Winlaton


Situated in the heart of Winlaton, we are a friendly and welcoming group of people of all ages seeking to follow Jesus.

St Paul’s is a Church of England Parish Church, and we seek to make the love of God known to all in Winlaton, Winlaton Mill and Blaydon Burn through our worship, fellowship and outreach.

At this time of the Coronavirus situation we have been advised to suspend the vast majority of social events and therefore there will be no Coffee Mornings and Messy Church for the foreseeable future.  Our services, at this present time are still going ahead but as this is a fast moving situation please be aware this this could change in the future.  

As a Church we love and care for one another, and we want to continue to do that as well as we can throughout this difficult time.  We should also be looking to the needs of all in our Parish and considering how we can reach out to them whilst keeping ourselves safe.  

This is a worrying time for all of us but we believe in a God who is bigger than all of it and we need to draw on the resources our faith give us.
