Welcome to St. Mary the Virgin Monkseaton

    "I came so that you may have life, and have it abundantly."John 10:10

    At St. Mary the Virgin, Monkseaton, we aim to offer a welcome to all members of the community, to provide a still centre in a turbulent world, and to share the good news of Jesus Christ.

    We have a variety of services, organisations, activities and events, the focus of which is our Sunday worship at 8 am and 10 am.

    In 2011 we celebrated 100 years of Christian worship on our church site and 80 years of our current building.  In 2015, to make the church more suitable for worship and community use in the 21st century,  the interior of the church building was decorated, rewired, had a new lighting scheme, and new flooring fitted. Changes were made to the entrance vestibule with a fully glazed panel to enhance the sense of welcome into the worship area.

    Please look in on us sometime, either at a church service, or at one of the many events and social activities that take place in our buildings.  Please look at 'Worship at St Mary's'  for details of services both on Sundays and during the week, and our Facebook page and Weekly Notice Sheet for other events taking place a St. Mary's.
