…to the website of St Lawrence the Martyr, the Parish Church for Horsley Hill, South Shields!

You’ll find us along Centenary Avenue (not far from the Nook), where our modern Church of England building (and beautiful garden) is home to a warm and welcoming church family. We try to show Jesus’s love for us in our worship of him and in how we serve alongside our local community and beyond.

It is with regret that “In light of the Government guidance around non-essential contact, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued advice that public worship is suspended until further notice.”

Although St Lawrence’s the building will be closed to the public, Fr Paul will continue to celebrate the Mass at 10am Wednesdays and 9:30am Sundays, which we will livestream on our Facebook page.

However, church is so much more than the building – it is each one of us who puts their faith in Jesus. Although we may not physically be together, we are still United as the Body of Christ. So please do continue to pray, to keep in touch via internet or phone, and stay safe at this worrying time.

We come together to worship on Sundays at 9.30am and Wednesdays at 10am. We also run our Wonderfully Made Messy Church once a month (usually on the 2nd Saturday) – click here for more information! We also meet in the Church Hall occasionally for food, drink and a good natter! Look out for advertised mornings and come along – all are welcome!
