We are the Diocese of Newcastle, proud to be the Church of England's northernmost diocese and framed between the rivers Tyne and Tweed. We have 237 Churches serving 178 Parishes in 12 Deaneries.
From our Street Pastors to our support of Foodbanks, we are at the heart of many projects helping to transform and enhance people's lives in all our urban and rural communities.
We are proud to be one of the largest providers of schools in our region, ensuring our children have the best possible education to give them the brightest start in life.
As the Government prepares to renationalise the Probation Service, today in the House of Lords Bishop Christine asked what is being done to ensure the voluntary sector is best equipped to serve the community.
