Open-air Ascension Day Eucharist at Finchale Priory Thursday 25th May 2017 at 6.30pm

25th May 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Every year St Oswald’s parish church organises an open-air Durham Deanery Eucharist at Finchale Priory on the evening of Ascension Day.¬† This service in the ruins of the medieval Priory is held within the space that was the Priory’s Chapel, to a background of birdsong and the rushing water of the River Wear. It¬†provides a continuity with Durham’s medieval past and, on a fine spring evening, is an uplifting experience shared by members of the churches of Durham Deanery. This year the preacher will be the Reverend Dr Alan Bartlett.
