St Aidan's Church


Built of red brick, the building has a simple, vaulted roof and a pleasing symmetry of design. Six mature Cupressus Macrocarpa trees, planted at the time of building, frame the body of the Church and a pleasant area of grass surrounds the site.
The interior of the building maintains the exterior simplicity of line and gives a light and airy worship space, compact but surprisingly spacious and with an excellent acoustic.

One of the three Church buildings that make up the Parish of Morpeth, St Aidan's is also the youngest building, having been founded in 1957 as a mission church to the Stobhill estate, on the south east of the town.
For the past fifty years, it has maintained an active outreach to the surrounding community, most especially to the pupils of Stobhillgate School and Collingwood School.
In April 2007, the Church celebrated its Golden Jubilee, with an exciting programme of events, not least of which was an open-air Service on Sunday April 22nd, in the presence of the Bishop of Newcastle.

The church is due to undergo an exciting refurbishment in 2015, with the building of an extension with a new kitchen and office space and the creation of a car park
