Welcome to St James Church in Riding Mill.

In the Diocese of Newcastle and set in the beautiful Tyne Valley, we are the Parish Church in the heart of the village.  

The village is a lively community and we offer a place of Christian worship and welcome.

This website will give you some basic information.  Do contact us if you would like to know more about Jesus and our lives with him, or better still, come and join us at any of our services!
