Not many people know this, but there have been Christadelphian communities and churches continuously in the North East of England since the 19th Century, for over 150 years! They have been based in Gateshead, Newcastle, Sunderland, Morpeth, and now in Wardley, where our church was established in 2009, by God’s grace. There are also 3 churches in the Teeside area.

We may be a relatively small branch of Christianity, but we have very friendly and active congregations all over the UK.


The name Christadelphian means "brothers in Christ". It is a name which emphasises the family bond that develops amongst believers and families in our church. The name was chosen by a British doctor in the USA back in the 1860’s, because it was necessary to identify and register as a Christian organisation during the Civil War.

Christadelphians are a world-wide community who simply seek to follow the teachings of the Bible and the example of Jesus Christ as our Lord. We see our faith as a ‘calling’ and that is why you may hear our churches described as ‘ecclesias’, which mean ‘called out’. We see it as a way of life.

Our church has a number of Bible-based beliefs and you can find a brief summary of them under What we believe

If you want to take it a bit further we have a section called  Beliefs – Digging Deeper or there are other links and resources to follow. Or, you could simply contact us.

Whatever you decide, we would love to chat with you!
