St. James Church, Burnopfield is your Parish Church if you live in Burnopfield, The Leazes, The Lintz, The Hobson and Crookgate Bank.


St James has been going through an interregnum period since May 2014, however we can now inform you that:

“The Bishop is pleased to announce the appointment of a Vicar-designate of Tanfield with Burnopfield & Dipton subject to the completion of necessary legal requirements.  He is the Revd Dr Andrew Miller, currently assistant curate at Barnard Castle.  He and his wife & family hope to move in May 2015.”

The scheme to separate Tanfield from the Team Ministry and create a new Benefice of Tanfield with Burnopfield and Dipton is expected to come into effect on 1st March.
