St Andrew's is part of the family of the Church of England, based in Haughton-le-Skerne. Haughton is an ancient village, which is now part of Darlington, a town with an exciting and vibrant life in the north east of England.
As a lively and welcoming Anglican Church we serve a number of communities including Haughton village, Whinfield, Red Hall and Springfield, and also welcome folks from further afield.
Our worship brings together contemporary music and the treasures of previous generations. We thoughtfully explore how the Bible's wisdom can address the challenges of our time. We have a variety of Sunday services, from traditional to "Messy Church" to suit the different people within the church. When a Sunday falls on the 5th Sunday of the month we encourage folks to stay on for a shared lunch which may be cooked or sometimes "bring & share"
Alongside the church services our vision is to serve the local community through other means. We are a hub for the Darlington Food Network. We run "Boathouse", a community cafe every Wednesday morning in the church hall. We host a meeting point for the Darlington Credit Union in the Boathouse Cafe. The church hall is available for hire for personal and community events. You can check the availablity of the hall with our online calendar.
Social events take place from time to time. Recent events include a Harvest Barn Dance, a Christmas Fayre, a Burns Supper and an Agape meal (normally on Maundy Thursday in Holy Week). Advance notice of these are published in monthly pewsheets and the "Latest News" section of this website.
There are a wide range of other events during the week including ABC (Adults, Babies and Children) for our youngest members on Monday morning and Wednesday afternoon. Other groups for adults include the monthly events Ladies Guild, Girls Aloud, and MenMeet. We also run a number of home based "Discipleship Groups" for Bible study, fellowship and prayer which usually meet on a weekly schedule.
St.Andrew's Scouts and Guides are affiliated to the church and usually attend a number of "Parade Services" every year.
St.Andrew's Haughton works closely with St.Andrew's, Sadberge. The Vicar and staff team service the spiritual needs of Sadberge Village and should be contacted for all queries about services, baptisms and weddings.
