Hexham Abbey is a living, vibrant church drawing on a long and prayerful heritage. Hexham lies 20 miles west of Newcastle in the Tyne Valley and is the commercial and social centre for west Northumberland. The Priory and Parish Church dates from 674AD, has a strong association with St Wilfrid and aspires to become ‘an open community of Christ’s disciples, sharing our worship, engaging our faith with the world, and offering our lives to serve God’s kingdom’.
