Praise, my soul, the King of heaven,

to his feet thy tribute bring;

ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,

who like me his praise should sing?

Alleluia, Alleluia,

praise the everlasting King.

Praise him for his grace and favour

to our fathers in distress;

praise him still the same as ever,

slow to chide, and swift to bless:

Alleluia, Alleluia,

glorious in his faithfulness.

Father-like, he tends and spares us,

well our feeble frame he knows;

in his hands he gently bears us,

rescues us from all our foes:

Alleluia, Alleluia,

widely as his mercy flows.

Angels, help us to adore him;

ye behold him face to face;

sun and moon, bow down before him,

dwellers all in time and space:

Alleluia, Alleluia,

praise with us the God of grace.

Welcome to the website of Seaham Harbour and Dawdon Parish servicing a rich and diverse part of East Durham.  The Parish activity is centred over two churches: St John the Evangelist situated at the head of Church Street in the heart of Seaham Harbour; a historic and beautiful building and All Saints, a more contemporary building located just off the Avenue on the Deanside Estate; built as a mission Church just over fifty years ago.

The Parish ethos is of traditional Anglian style under the episcopal care of the Bishop of Beverly in the Diocese of Durham and in the Deanery of Easington.  Its worship is focused on the Eucharist which is celebrated daily, complete with morning and evening prayer.

The Parish clergy are Father Peter Twisleton (Parish Priest) and Father Chris Collins (Honorary Assistant Priest) who will be pleased to help with any enquiries about the Parish and matters of faith.

Below details information of our Service times and we hope you find this website informative by using the tabs above to navigate around the site.

In Christ there is no East or West,

In Him no South or North;

But one great fellowship of love

Throughout the whole wide earth.

In Him shall true hearts everywhere

Their high communion find;

His service is the golden cord,

Close binding humankind.

Join hands, then, members of the faith,

Whatever your race may be!

Who serves my Father as His child

Is surely kin to me.

In Christ now meet both East and West,

In Him meet North and South;

All Christly souls are one in Him

Throughout the whole wide earth.
