Our Covid19 risk assessment is available at the bottom of this page. (right hand side). We have also made the following addition:

In July 2021 in light of the easing of restrictions in step 4, and the end of mandatory regulations, the church council advises an ongoing cautious approach to reopening, enjoying the right to freedom of choice and expression, but recommending safe practice of continued hand washing, space and mask, continued ventilation of buildings and recommendation of perhaps singing fewer hymns (or fewer verses) quietly, seated and masked — especially at current high community infection. We ask that all users of the building respect this.


A Faithful, Friendly, Fun-loving Family

Auckland Park was founded in 1893 and continues in the present day to offer a welcome to anyone who would wish to join them. It is a small, friendly congregation with a big heart and a very warm welcome.

We are situated in Douglass Crescent, in the former mining village of Auckland Park, to the north-east of Bishop Auckland.

The present building has been here since 1893, when it replaced an earlier tin chapel.

We have a monthly fellowship, known as The Wednesday Club, which meets on the third Wednesday of most months, at 7.15pm.

We have a Hobbies Group, which meets on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, at 7pm, and is a mixture of sharing hobbies and having a good natter.

A toddlers group meets on Tuesdays during term-time.
