Welcome to our Church *




All are Welcome.

St. Helen’s is a friendly and growing church where people of all ages come together to worship and grow as God’s people in Low Fell. We gather each week to share fellowship and Holy Communion and to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation with the hope that all may come to know the depth of God’s generous love for each and every one.

Messy Church meets regularly at 4.30pm on the last Saturday of each month. Here, there are opportunities to learn of God’s love and to share fun, friendship and food together. Children of ages are welcome, do come along and join in.

At St. Helen’s we seek to support our neighbours near and far, by deepening our links with the local community of Low Fell, by working more closely with our neighbouring Parish of St. Chad Bensham and Teams and through extending welcome, support and encouragement to those in need of it, both nationally and internationally.

We would love to talk to you about Baptisms and Weddings at St. Helen’s. You are very welcome to come along to the Church Hall and join us for a coffee any Sunday at 10.45 am where there will be people to help you make a booking.

Why not come and join us by coming along to one of our services or events.

Talking Jesus Mission Weekend.

March 2nd/5th 2017

St Helens Parish was part of Durham Diocesan Bishops in Mission Weekend .

The parish of St Helens joined in and organised a full weekend of activities to help people talk about Jesus. We welcomed the Bishop of Huddersfield and his team, Canon Missioner David Banbury and his team from Blackburn and 6 students from Cranmer college. We cleaned peoples shoes on the Fell and in Saltwell Park, gave out Anegls and prayed with people at the Angel of the North, had Soup and Stottie and table talk at the church Hall and a celebration Family Service on the Sunday. We also visited Kells Lane School, Dryden School and Joseph Swan Academy where the students asked the Bishop a range of thoughtful and complex questions. We hope anyone who met us enjoyed our activities and that you'll be in touch with us again soon.

I didn’t know that what I was actually doing when I fished around for the loose change in my handbag, was presenting to God a gift that said both ‘Thank you’ and ‘I love you’.
