Bookings admin

Both of our Durham city centre churches at Elvet and North Road have rooms available to book for meetings, rehearsals, concerts, etc. Please contact us for more information or to request a booking.

Getting there: Our North Road church has excellent public transport links, being next door to Durham bus station and only five minutes walk from the railway station. Our Elvet church on the eastern side of the city centre is closer to the University and is a short walk from local bus services. Both sites are close to the A690 and have some car parking available for users: see our Where we are page for maps.
