Evening Worship

SUNDAYS:
6pm        | Physical gathering (St Oswald’s Institute, Church Street)         
7.30pm   | Physical gathering (St Oswald’s Institute, Church Street)
7.30pm   | Online Zoom service 

We’re excited that we can gather in person for worship but we are still limited by capacity and COVID restrictions, however, we hope that in time everyone who wants to will be able to join a gathering.

Our Gathered Worship is ticket-only, runs for 45 minutes in St Oswald’s Institute with COVID-Secure restrictions. 

Tickets are available until the Thursday evening before the service, so that we can create a seating plan and set it up. 

Where possible please sign up as a whole household group as this maximises the space we have available. 

Sign up here or ring 0191 384 2018 in office hours and they can take your booking details.

During University term-time and in non-pandemic times, we have two evening services at 6pm and 7.30pm at St Oswalds Institute.

Our evening meetings follow a simple format: opening worship, a talk engaging with Scripture, and more worship and response time. The band begin leading worship a couple of minutes before the formal start of each meeting. If you have a testimony to share at Evening Worship, please chat to Chris Morgan or the meeting leader.

If it’s near the beginning or end of term, you can check the Church Calendar to be sure whether Evening Worship is happening.
