Rejoice! the Lord is King.

Your Lord and King adore;

mortals, give thanks and sing,

and triumph evermore:


Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

rejoice, again I say, rejoice.


Jesus, the Saviour, reigns,

the God of truth and love;

when he had purged our stains,

he took his seat above:


Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

rejoice, again I say, rejoice.


His kingdom cannot fail;

he rules o'er earth and heaven;

the keys of death and hell

are to our Jesus given:


Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

rejoice, again I say, rejoice.


He sits at God's right hand

till all his foes submit,

and bow to his command,

and fall beneath his feet:


Lift up your heart, lift up your voice;

rejoice, again I say, rejoice.


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.

From heaven You came,

Helpless Babe,

Entered our world, Your glory veiled;

Not to be served but to serve,

And give Your life that we might live.


This is our God, the Servant King,

He calls us now to follow Him,

To bring our lives, as a daily offering

Of worship to the Servant King.


There in the garden of tears,

My heavy load, He chose to bear;

His heart with sorrow was torn,

'Yet not My will but Yours' He said.


This is our God, the Servant King,

He calls us now to follow Him,

To bring our lives, as a daily offering

Of worship to the Servant King.


Come see His hands and His feet,

The scars that speak, of sacrifice,

Hands that flung stars into space

Two cruel nails surrendered.


This is our God, the Servant King,

He calls us now to follow Him,

To bring our lives, as a daily offering

Of worship to the Servant King.


So let us learn how to serve,

And in our lives, enthrone Him;

Each other's needs to prefer

For it is Christ we're serving.


This is our God, the Servant King,

He calls us now to follow Him,

To bring our lives, as a daily offering

Of worship to the Servant King.
