Other information


Durham City East Methodists is one church based across three sites – Bowburn, Carrville and Pittington. We are a group of people from the local area who are committed to following Jesus. This means we worship God together to bear witness in our local communities, and we encourage prayer in church and throughout life. Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed in our chapels. We gather in church to worship God, to listen to His word and to seek to understand how we can best serve Him in the world. It is an exciting place to meet and worship, and we welcome visitors with warmth and friendship. Details about what we are doing is available at www.carrvillemethodist.org.uk
