We are Shildon Alive

Shildon Alive Logo

Shildon Alive-A St John's Church Project is a community project run by the community, for the community. 

At Shildon Alive you can make a contribution to one of our projects, share your skills and experience, learn new skills and make friends. We bring people together, promote health and wellbeing, support you as you grow and reach your full potential as part of the community. 

We will offer you help and advice in a crisis. We also offer rewarding volunteer opportunities, and support you in that role as you gain in confidence and develop new skills. We offer a friendly ear and advocacy service as you shape your own life, the lives of others around you and the wider community.
