Diocese of Newcastle

Welcome to the Diocese of Newcastle


The Diocese of Newcastle lies in the north east of England between the River Tyne and the Scottish border. We take in Newcastle city, North Tyneside and Northumberland. We even stretch into bits of County Durham and Cumbria. Our landscape is stunning and our people are among the friendliest in the country.

We are absolutely passionate about where we live.

Our five year vision, growing church bringing hope, expresses our deep longing to see our worshipping communities grow across our Diocese - in numbers, in prayer and in discipleship. We are committed to serving all our communities, making a difference where we can and sharing the hope that we have. We are inspired by the power of God to transform both us and the world around us.

We are at the heart of many community initiatives across Newcastle Diocese, transforming lives and giving support to those in our communities who require it the most.

Today we build on what we have received from the past, and pray for the future life of our Diocese – all the while seeking to be Generous, Engaged and Open in our outlook and actions; sustaining a local Christian presence in all our communities.
