King's Church Durham
King’s Church is a lively, Bible-based community church worshipping at the heart of Durham City.
We are committed to the preaching of Scripture, open to the work of the Holy Spirit and active in mission and service in the local community.
"Kings Church Durham is a Christian community that exists to make wholehearted disciples of Jesus, to develop the gifts of every individual, equipping them for service in the world and to proclaim the gospel of Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit."
Mark Bonnington heads up the Kings Leadership Team. The Leadership Team is supported by the church staff, the Interns and a large team of volunteers involved with the various aspects of Kings' life and mission.
Community and Mission
Part of Kings' vision is to participate in and contribute to our local community. As well as encouraging and equipping members of the congregation to get involved in their own communities, be that their workplace, sports team, society or neighbourhood, we also run Kings Community Outreach Projects. Through these, we are involved in a variety of activities - some regular, some one-off events. Over the past few years we've renovated a local park, visited elderly and isolated people, run fun days, cleared gardens, run a tots and toddlers group, sung in a local care home, run a youth club for local kids, offered students a hot drink and chance to chat on their way home late, wrapped Christmas presents - all these things, and many more, have been a regular part of our community outreach. We run an Alpha course and regular evangelistic Guest Services, as well as an annual mission week, June Project!
A large number of students from all over the country and from all kinds of churches make Kings their home whilst in Durham. We have a thriving student ministry and we're passionate about seeing students equipped to be life-long followers of Jesus who love God, serve the Church and make disciples!
Children's and Youth Ministry
The children and youth at Kings are a vibrant part of our church body. We have groups for children and young people on Sundays, as well as several opportunities throughout the week.
