Welcome to the Norham Deanery Website


North Northumberland is rich in Christian heritage: it is the land of the Northumbrian Saints, notably St Aidan, who first created the mission base on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne in the 7th century, and St Cuthbert, the beloved teacher, pastor and hermit who had such a profound effect on the character of Northumbria and the North of England. The parishes of the Norham Deanery still reflect something of that character in a land that has seen so much conflict between Scots and English, and between different Border Reiver families, over the centuries.This beautiful country of moorland hills and wooded valleys, long sandy beaches and fortified castles now lies in rugged tranquillity, it's many beautiful churches speaking eloquently of their long history. The Anglican churches of the Norham Deanery are part of the Diocese of Newcastle and include the following parishes:

Ancroft, Branxton, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Carham, Cornhill, Ford and Etal, Holy Island, Lowick, Norham, Scremerston, Spittal and Tweedmouth.



The Deanery Synod

The Synod draws together clergy and lay representatives from all the Anglican Churches in the Norham Deanery to discuss matters of mutual concern and interest. Given the nature of Northumberland, both urban and rural communities can gain support from others facing similar issues; and resources and experience can be shared to mutual benefit.

 The Church of England is one of the few bodies that has some presence in virtually every community in our area; it therefore has a special responsibility to be "the body of Christ", ministering to both spiritual and temporal needs. Logo



Hosting with HOSTUK 2017-18

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Hebrews 13:2

How true such advice can be. Hospitality is an equal partnership, the feel-good factor of offering it and the delight in receiving it.

HOST UK is a charity whose mission is to give a welcome to international students in British homes for friendship and cultural exchange. We operate all year round including Christmas and New Year when being welcomed into a home is vastly preferable to lonely halls of residence.

Hospitality can be offered for one day (daytime only), three days and two nights at the weekend, or at New Year, or four days and three nights during the Christmas festive period.

The choice is yours. And remember...your offer can be made at any time of the year.
