The old market town of Sedgefield together with nearby communities form the small Upper Skerne Team. This is a partnership of clergy and laity, with a vision to develop discipleship and inspiring worship, to work with schools and families, and to evangelise and serve within local communities. “If you are as excited as we are by the prospect of seeing people of all ages come to a living and life-transforming faith, in the communities that we serve, and if you can sense that God is giving you the same vision for the future that we share, then we shall rejoice to meet you and explore this further.”

Additional Details

The vision of the Diocese is ‘Blessing our communities in Jesus’ name for the transformation of us all’. Within this the three core priorities are Growing the Church, Children and Young People and Poverty. These are outlined and expressed in the Diocesan ‘Plan on a Page’.
