Shildon Methodist Church is one of a number of chapels in the Bishop Auckland and Shildon Methodist Circuit. The Superintendent Minister, Rev David Payne, has oversight for our church.

The Church plays an active part in the religious and community aspects of the town. We work with other denominations in the town through 'Shildon Churches United'. We run many open events such as quizzes, coffee mornings and Chatty, Crafty Cafe. 


The church meets for Sunday Worship at 10.30am or 2.30pm and everyone is welcome. You can also join with us at our open, informal coffee morning on Thursday between 9.45am and 11.00am in the Community Hall. Other regular events are shown on the Activities page.


The Church is located in Main Street at the junction with Church Street and Central Parade in the centre of the town. Use DL4 1DB if you need to locate us with your sat-nav. We have a small car park behind the church.  The entrance to the Church car park is narrow and is accessed from the roundabout at the junction of Main Street, Church Street and Central Parade. There is a large car park in Civic Hall Square which can be used, although this can be quite full if there are events on at Shildon Civic Hall. There is also lots of on-street parking in the streets surrounding us.
