Drive-In Show Service

We cannot meet up at the Weardale Agricultural Show this year, but we can still celebrate!

Join us at the Stanhope Show field at the Big Shed for Drive-In Church, on Sunday 13th September at 3pm, as we give thanks for all who live and work in the dale, and for God's generous care. The service has been organised by Weardale Churches Together and Ichthus Music.

You stay in the safety of your vehicle and join us in worship led by Rev Bruce Sawyer and Rev Claire McClelland and the Ichthus Band.

Booking essential via Eventbrite

Please note, you cannot leave your vehicle and there are no toilet facilities.

The service is also being broadcast live on Bishop FM, 105.9 FM.

During our show services Weardale Churches Together usually collect donations to support the work of various charities. This year, as we are unable to take a physical collection, we would encourage you to make a donation online to support the work of FCN [The Farming Community Network], a voluntary organisation and charity that supports farmers and families within the farming community through difficult times. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so at


Unfortunately, due to copyright reasons, we are unable to publish the words of the songs to be used in the service on this web site. Paper song sheets will be available at the service, or you can find the words using the following links:


Great is Thy Faithfulness

Bless the Lord O my Soul

Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)

The Splendour of the King

Be Thou my Vision (Verses 1-4, then repeat verse 1)
