Hamsterley Churches Together
The three Churches in the Village – Anglican, Baptist and Methodist, work together under a local ecumenical partnership agreement (LEP) known as Hamsterley Churches Together. They also form part of larger groupings of Churches within their own denominations. The Methodist premises in the village are used as a Churches Together Centre for a range of joint activities.
Children are welcome at Services and at special events arranged from time to time.
