The church is a Grade 1 listed building, described by historians as one of the earliest Anglo Saxon churches in existence. It overlooks the cliffs and the sea of the Durham coast. The parish has links with Lord Byron and the coal owning Londonderry family.

The stained glass windows are one of the most interesting features, especially the two Kempe windows with the designer's trademoark. Sit in Georgian pews and look at an exhibition of archive photos and maps of Old Seaham.
