Welcome to the website of the church of the Holy Trinity and St. Mary, Berwick-upon-Tweed: the most northerly church in England!

We hope this site will give you an insight into our activities and Christian beliefs.  We encourage all visitors to come and explore the church and its environment without obligation.

The parish takes in the land north of the River Tweed estuary to the border with Berwickshire in Scotland.  The boundary is co-terminus with that of the "Liberties of Berwick", the Bounds of which have been ridden on horseback on May Day of each year for several hundred years. 

The church is part of Norham Deanery, which also contains the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, and is in the Diocese of Newcastle.  At the last Census in 2011 the parish had a population of just under 4,500 people. It encompasses the town of Berwick and the rural area to the north and west.The church is the Civic Church for Berwick-upon-Tweed and the wider community, holding services for local and national occasions. The Guild of Freemen recognise Holy Trinity as their church and in the past had the power to appoint two of the church's four churchwardens. Within the parish there are other denominations, with St. Andrew's Church next door, which is Church of Scotland. Nearby there are Baptist, Methodist, Roman Catholic and Salvation Army places of worship.

The church is open daily from 9.00am until dusk, or 5.00pm in the summer, for private prayer and contemplation and regular services are held on Thursdays and Sundays.

Daily prayers are said by the Vicar on Monday to Friday at 8.30am and 5.00pm and the Vicar would welcome others to join him in this important ministry of the church.

We use both the Book of Common Worship and Book of Common Prayer and have a robed choir.

We have a well appointed parish centre next to the church, which is available for private meetings, events and functions.




A warm welcome to the church of Holy Trinity with St Mary, Berwick-upon-Tweed. Our church is open daily to welcome visitors.
Come and explore our history, reflect on our Christian story and faith and take a moment to enjoy the stillness and tranquillity of this sacred place.
