Although we had to suspend our worship services, we still would like to continue our care for the community of Dunston.  Please visit our website for further information or phone the minister Rev’d Brigitta Steele on 0191 6607091. 

National Trust - This has been suspended during the "lockdown"

Whilst the National Trust are closing many of their visitor facilities and buildings, a number of their parks and gardens are being left open for all people (whether members or not) to be able to enjoy for the time being. These open spaces are a great way to get some exercise in the fresh air whilst being able to maintain that social distancing. 

Gibside is the closest National Trust property.

For more information see the National Trust website.
