The congregation of Swalwell Church have organised a Prayer Room which will be open between the 18th and 20th May. Everyone is invited to take a little time to consider both our ‘Welcome’ to others and also the ‘Welcome’ that awaits us in the love of Jesus. As in previous years, there will be a series of created areas in church with small activities, prayers and readings. Please click on the pictures to view in full size. It really is quite special….!!!

As a church, we are a group of people who meet together to worship Jesus Christ and share our lives with each other. We want to be here for you in the local community and for everyone to learn about God and His plan in their lives.  

We think of ourselves as a group of people with Jesus in our lives. Everyone is welcome, without exception. – there is always space for someone else and we’d love you to be with us. 

If you can’t get to Church you can always access a Sunday service on-line from the Church of England at
