St. Andrew's Church, Bothal is the Church of England's Parish Church for Bothal and Pegswood and is run as part of a local group of Churches alongside St. Margaret's Chapel Pegswood and St. John's Church, Longhirst whose website can be found in "Links". Sunday Services therefore are shared between the three churches and this means there is a fortnightly Sunday Morning Holy Communion Service at Bothal. To see how this works out each month please click on "Sunday Services" above. 

    St. Andrew's is home to a living church which seeks to faithfully carry out its mission within the Parish and beyond and is popular for christenings and weddings. 

    We seek to encourage a more informed grasp of the Christian faith through study groups and to educate local children by organising activity and workshop events at Christmas and Easter and by developing links with local schools.  





    A favourite activity is the decorating of silk banners some of which now hang in the church. This one was produced at a Christmas event

    A church building has been on this site from at least 900AD with the oldest parts of the present building dating back to the late twelfth century. This Grade 1 listed building, as can be imagined, has a long and fascinating history and you can find out much more about this by clicking on "History" above. 

    Not surprisingly we take our heritage very seriously and so church members seek to opening the Church at least 40 days a year for the public to visit during the summer months. 


    We take a full part in the increasingly popular Northumberland Heritage Open Days during the second weekend in September each year. Group tours of Bothal Church (and sometimes Bothal Castle too when available) can be made by arrangement and for details click on "Contact Us"
