King’s Church is a lively, Bible-based and missional community church worshipping at the heart of Durham City. It is a meeting place for people of many backgrounds and cultures focussed on living and speaking for Jesus.

Our main distinctives are the holding together of serious commitment to the systematic preaching of Scripture, engagement with the life and gifts of the Holy Spirit and active in mission and service in the local community and further afield. The main elements of our mission are set out in our vision and values.
