Welcome to the parish of the Sacred Heart RC Church, North Gosforth

Photo of exterior of church East window central light The parish of the Sacred Heart has a reputation for being welcoming and friendly, with many varied activities for all age groups. This web site provides information about these activities and the liturgical life of the parish. Read our Parish Profile to get a flavour of who we are, what we do and how we do it.

The church is a Grade II listed building with an interesting and unusual history, having been built originally as an Anglican church. The pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows in the church were designed mainly by Edward Burne-Jones, with contributions from Ford Madox Brown and William Morris and constitute one of the best collections of stained-glass from the William Morris Company in the North of England.

Forward Together in Hope

Ged Downey (our official representative for the scheme) has been working with his colleagues from the Gosforth, Benton, Forest Hall and Jesmond parishes to form our new partnership area. They have prepared and submitted the proposal for a partnership to the Foward Together in Hope team, and these can be viewed here:

In the New Year, the senior diocesan team will examine all proposed partnerships, to see if they are viable in the long term. If some are found to be non-viable, the partnership boundaries will have to be altered to make them so. All should be sorted by end of February 2017.

If you have any questions or concerns, please phone Ged on 0191 242 1718 or email gedowney@yahoo.com
