New to Durham?

The covid-19 pandemic means this is a rather unusual year to be turning up in a new place and finding a new church. If you are coming to live here we want to welcome you to our wonderful city and to church even if you’re ‘just looking’.

At this point this website is the best place to keep an eye on what is going on. We have left most of the pages unchanged since lockdown so that you can get an impression of Kings church life as it has been and mostly will be.

In August we have Sunday worship from 10.30-11.35am at

From September our one hour Sunday evening Zoom worship will resume.

After each there is a chance to meet people in a Zoom room, advertised at the end of worship.

We’d love to meet you personally – the best way to be in touch to say ‘Hi – I’m here’ is to email the church office Let us know you’d like us to get in contact and we’ll be glad to get one of our pastoral staff to phone, Zoom, email or even come and say (shout!?) ‘Hi’ at a safe distance somewhere.

If you are a new student coming to Durham: Congratulations! You are going to have a great time here despite covid-19. Do be in contact with our student team by emailing and one of our student ministry team will be very glad to get in touch ahead of your arriving to study in the autumn. We also have a special welcome for you.

Welcome to Durham!
