St John's Church lies in the Anglican diocese of Newcastle and is the parish church for the community of Whorlton and Westerhope, which means we are here to serve God and every member of our local community. The church, and its congregation, has been a centre of worship and of service to the local community since 1866. It is our spiritual home – and we hope it might become yours, too.
Our Priest in Charge is the Reverend Matthew Hunter who was licensed by the Bishop of Newcastle on Saturday 6th October 2018.
