Information for churches

Hexham Abbey a place of worship since AD674

The Spirit in Stone website was set up by Inspired North East in 2013 to encourage people to explore the region's rich heritage of historic churches.

From time to time we review the contents, update details of churches already featured, and add new material. This is done by a volunteer as time permits.

If your church is not already included we can add your church to the website free of charge. To be eligible your church should be open regularly to welcome visitors.  If your church is featured in this website and you need to change details of opening times etc please let us know. Contact by email: spiritinstone2000@gmail.com
