Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!

our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!

who did once upon the cross, Alleluia!

suffer to redeem our loss. Alleluia!

Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!

unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!

who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!

sinners to redeem and save. Alleluia!

But the pains which he endured, Alleluia!

our salvation have procured, Alleluia!

now above the sky he's King, Alleluia!

where the angels ever sing. Alleluia!

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.

Ye choirs of new Jerusalem,

Your sweetest notes employ,

The Paschal victory to hymn

In strains of holy joy.

For Judah’s Lion bursts His chains,

Crushing the serpent’s head;

And cries aloud through death’s domains

To wake the imprisoned dead.

From hell’s devouring jaws the prey

Alone our Leader bore;

His ransomed hosts pursue their way

Where Jesus goes before.

Triumphant in His glory now

To Him all power is given;

To Him in one communion bow

All saints in earth and heaven.

While we, His soldiers, praise our King,

His mercy we implore,

Within His palace bright to bring

And keep us evermore.

All glory to the Father be,

All glory to the Son,

All glory, Holy Ghost, to Thee,

While endless ages run.
