A warm welcome to our website.

The Anglican church of St. Cuthbert serves the community of Blaydon. We’re here to help people find God and grow in their relationship with him.

In addition to our regular Sunday worship we have a range of small groups and, on the last Saturday of each month, run Messy Church for children and their parents.

The Church offers refreshment and delicious home made cakes at the midweek ‘Litebite’. Do come along, regardless of whether or not you are a regular churchgoer. The congregation will give any newcomer or visitor the warmest of welcome.

The Community Hall in Blaydon is a venue for a variety of social activities. For young people the Air Training Corps, and for adults, yoga, zumba, pilates, sequence dancing and carpet bowls, all offer a healthy and enjoyable meeting place. The hall is available to hire for individual events or on a permanent basis at other times, with a capacity of up to 75 people.

St. Cuthbert is a Grade II listed church in Blaydon, Tyne and Wear.
The church was built in 1845 for the  Church of England. It was designed by George Pickering, and is made of local sandstone. The nave and porch were erected in 1844, the north aisle, chancel and tower added later.

The church seats approximately 350 people. Inside there is a large traditional worship space with a central aisle. This is a great setting for a wedding and for baptisms. Some of the pews at the back of the building have been removed to create a flexible space for less formal activities.

Community lunches and Pie’n Pea  suppers are held here, and after the morning service excellent filter coffee, tea and cake is served. There is a children’s area at one end, where our younger church members enjoy play and craft, and where younger visitors are welcome at any time during or after a service.

The church also has a meeting room beyond the vestry, which can be accessed from church or  separately.. The room is also used by outside groups, including Alcoholics Anonymous.
