Diocese of Newcastle

A big welcome from our Children's and Young People's Work Support Team

Our team is made up of Revd Rachel Scheffer, who has part-time responsibility to parishes in the west, Revd James Harvey, with part-time responsibility to parishes in the north, and Judith Sadler, based at Church House, who supports churches in the three Newcastle deaneries, as well as Bedlington and Tynemouth.

Together, we've developed 'Growth and Fruitfulness' - a strategy to support churches in their desire to 'become the good news' in their communities. ('Going for Growth - Transformation for children, young people and the Church', para 1.9).

You can:

Becoming the good news takes many different shapes and forms, depending upon the context and circumstances of each church community. To do this the team needs to learn from, respond to and build upon existing work, questions, challenges and creative ideas with which churches are currently engaging.
