St.Paul's church has been a place of Christian prayer and worship for over 1300 years. As the home of the Venerable Bede, priest, monk and scholar of Jarrow, it is now a centre of pilgrimage with international significance.
We pray that you will be changed by your experience here and catch a glimpse of God, who has inspired many who have made their pilgrimage here before.
To keep this historic church open daily to visitors, pilgrims, schoolchildren etc., we require the help of volunteers. -- Are you able to help please by giving 2 hours of your time per week ? There is a vacancy on Mondays 10am until 12.
Alternatively you may wish to go onto the reserve list to provide cover for holidays etc. -- 2 hours per week.
If interested please visit "Volunteers Page" for further info.
