History is made in Hawthorn.
On Sunday 30th September 2018 history was made when for the first time in the 156-year life of St Michael & All Angels Church in the village, the Lord Bishop of Durham, the Rt Rev'd Paul Butler, conducted a service of Ordination as Deacon of Paul Paterson. The event had a further uniqueness in that it it was the very first time that the the Bishop had taken a service of Ordination away from the Cathedral.
