    Church of England   Daily Hope    phone line

    Daily Hope offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.

    The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind.



    All services at our four churches have been suspended until further notice.  Knit and Natter and coffee stop have also been cancelled.  For groups using our church halls, please contact your organiser for further details'  There will be no hall bookings and the Parish office at St Peter's is now closed.

    An alternative pew sheet with details of the current Sunday's hymns, readings etc., togther with any messages  will continue to be published on this site.  It is also e-mailed to all those who have provided contact details

    Lynn Armstrong and Susan Short will be praying for the Parish, and all those affected by the current unprecedented situation, on Mondays at 2pm for half an hour.  If anyone would like specific prayer intentions, please email susanshort53@gmail.com - Lynn and Susan will include these prayers each Monday.  If you would like to join in this prayer time in your own home, that would be fantastic, light a candle and hold those in need in your prayers.


    We, the Parish of Jarrow and Simonside, will share our faith, hope and love in God with all,  through our worship, witness and service.

                    Anyone is welcome to come and join with our worship in any of our four      wonderful churches spread around the town of Jarrow and of Simonside, South Shields.

    We are committed, with the Diocese of Durham,
    blessing our communities in Jesus name.

    The Parish of Jarrow and Simonside covers much of the town of Jarrow, a historic town in South Tyneside in the north-east of England and the estate of Simonside in South Shields.    The parish is part of the Deanery of Jarrow in the Church of England's Diocese of Durham.

    The parish comprises four churches: St Simons, St Peter's, St John the Baptist, and St Paul's - which was home to the Venerable Bede and formed one half of the twin monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow.
