WELCOME to the Web site for Holy Trinity Church, Pelton and St. Paul’s Church, West Pelton.  The parishes of Pelton and West Pelton minister to a group of ex-mining villages and new housing developments which lie to the north west of Chester-le-Street in County Durham.  The villages include; Pelton, Ouston, Urpeth Grange, Newfield, Pelton Lane Ends, Grange Villa, West Pelton, High Handenhold, Beamish and the interestingly named No Place!  For those who are unfamiliar with the area much of Beamish Open Air Museum lies within the Parish Boundaries.  You will find some photographs of the churches on our website. Sunday and midweek services in both of our churches, cover a range of styles from traditional to contemporary.  Our aim is to be a church for everyone, a place where we can worship and grow together in faith regardless of age, experience or background and to be a worshiping people which seeks to reach out into our local community to share the Good News of Jesus in love and service.

We hope our website helps you to discover more about us, but do get in touch if you want to know more, or visit us for a more personal welcome.  If you are new to the site or have a specific question (such as how to arrange a Baptism or Wedding or what groups exist for young people), then try clicking on the LIFE EVENTS tabs at the top.
