Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart

Nought be all else to me, save that Thy art;

Thou my best thought, by day and night-

Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.


Be Thou my wisdom, be Thou my true word-

I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;

Thou my great Father, I Thy true son-

Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.


Be Thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight

Be Thou my armour and be Thou my might

Thou my soul's shelter, and Thy my high tower

Raise Thou me heavenwards, O power of my power


Riches I need not, nor man's empty praise-

Thou mine inheritance, through all of my days;

Thou and Thou only, the first in my heart-

High king of heaven, my treasure Thou art.


O High king of heaven, when is battle is done,

Grant heaven's joy to me, bright heaven's Sun!

Christ of my own heart, whatever befall,

Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.


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.

To God be the glory, great things he has done!

So loved he the world that he gave us his son,

Who yielded his life in atonement for sin,

And opened the life-gate that all may go in:


Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Let the earth hear his voice!

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son;

And give him the glory - great things he has done!


O perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,

To every believer the promise of God!

And every offender that truly believes,

That moment from Jesus a pardon receives:


Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Let the earth hear his voice!

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son;

And give him the glory - great things he has done!


Great things he has taught us, great things he has done,

And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;

But purer, and higher, and greater will be

Our wonder, our rapture, when Jesus we see:


Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Let the earth hear his voice!

Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

Let the people rejoice!

O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son;

And give him the glory - great things he has done!
