St Michael & All Angels Church

St Michael and All Angels Church


St Michael and All Angels is a pretty parish church built in 1862 and is the focal point of Hawthorn.

As part of the Church of England, weekly services are held, and the attractive churchyard is still in use for burials, and is regularly maintained. The church itself is also a beautiful setting for weddings.

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.
