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.

  • Eric, Sandra, Peter and Atiyah have arrived back in the Philippines, and Vicky is back in Madagascar. The latest Prayer Letter from Vicky Hopley is here and from Eric and Sandra is here
  • A reminder that St Mary's is usually open every day. Holy Saviour, Milbourne, will be open on Sunday afternoons throughout the summer. Please visit, enjoy the history and the peace, and sign the Visitors' Book. The more visitors we know we have had, the easier it is to persuade people our churches should be open.

  • Reform and Renewal is the Church of England's programme as we look to the future. This will have a large effect on our diocese and therefore on our parish. You can read more about it at The Diocese are running Roadshows in September and we are invited to attend. The letter is here. If you would like to go, please contact Maureen who will book places and coordinate car-sharing.
