  • Church Planting Conference

    Last year, the Church Planting Conference took place in London, and saw hundreds of people gather to talk about church planting and growth. This year, there will be a conference in London AND Leeds on consecutive days. Speakers include Archie Coates, Bishop Jill Duff, Bishop Ric Thorpe and Bishop Philip North. There will also be the chance to sign up for a 1 to 1 ‘Coaching Counter’ session- your chance to talk about your issue with an expert in Operations, BMOs, Fundraising or just bring your next big idea!

    If you are looking to grow your church or will be thinking about planting, this day is for you!

  • West Newcastle Symphony Orchestra in Concert

    West Newcastle Symphony Orchestra invite you to their summer concert in their local community.

    The orchestra will perform a variety of music, from film to classical, with a special guest joining them to perform an arrangement of Saint-Saëns Organ Concerto.

    No need to book, just turn up on the day.

    The West Newcastle Symphony Orchestra (WNSO) was born out of In Harmony Newcastle Gateshead, which runs at Hawthorn Primary School and Bridgewater School. News quickly spread about the benefits regular music-making was having on the school, children and young people and families in the area and so WNSO was created.

  • Inspired Futures Conference: Sustaining Church Buildings in the North East

    The conference will present the achievements, experience and learning from the three year Inspired Futures church building development project in North East England (funded by the National Lottery Heritage fund, and working with 18 historic Church of England churches in the Dioceses of Newcastle and Durham).

    It will be a great opportunity for anyone caring for places of worship – whether locally or nationally, as a volunteer or professional, as a worshipper or wider community member, or as a cleric or a lay person - to discover what Inspired Futures has done and achieved, and, against a background where the future sustainability of church buildings is a national issue, to explore where this project points for the future of church building development and care.
