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

Following the Vicariate meeting on 19th October things are becoming a bit clearer as the options which we have as a parish become narrower due to actions by the parishes around us. We had some really good discussions with Annitsford and Cramlington, but they have decided to go with a partnership which has Blyth as a hub church. Similarly, Kenton and Ponteland are falling into line with their deanery partnerships so we are currently working with Gosforth, Jesmond, Benton and Forest Hall.

We hope to host a "get to know you" social event in the near future and Ged Downey will speak on this topic at each Mass over the weekend of 29th to 30th October. If you have any questions or concerns, you can email him at gedowney@yahoo.com or phone him on 0191 242 1718.
