The land for two churches on Newton Hall was donated by Wm Leech when the Newton Hall Estate was built. A Methodist Church was built in 1967. After worshipping in Blue Coat School for some time it was agreed that both the Anglican and Methodist denominations would worship in the same church so in 1970 a Local Ecumenical Project was set up at All Saints. This is now a Local Ecumenical Partnership. See All Saints website link at the bottom of the page:
All Saints has around 100 Members ranging from the very young to the – not so young! We offer an inter-denominational, friendly, family environment for all age worship. Our Vision Statement reads: “All Saints seeks to be a tolerant, vibrant worshipping church, enthusiastically working through practical and spiritual action to share Christ’s love with all.”

For the past five years Durham North Team have been formally linked with Bujumbura Christian University and in that time a group has visited the country and the Team has raised over £10,000!
Although the Muneza family have now moved on from the Team, the link is alive and active. Please take time to watch the wonderful video that Christine and others have produced. It includes the students singing ‘we wish you a merry Christmas’ and offers lots of creative ways to give them some financial support in the coming year. https://youtu.be/KYIrxhegORo
