Young Piano Players' Afternoon

2pm and 3.30pm Sunday 3rd July

We would love you to join us for an afternoon of relaxed performances by Fiona Gould's young piano pupils. We are lucky enough to host two separate concerts; one starting at 2pm and the next at 3:30pm. Audience welcome at one or both concerts, with refreshments served in the interval.

Admission to this concert is free, but there will be a retiring collection to support our Church and Concert Series. Please do still claim a ticket, as this helps us to better prepare for the concert.



Work begins on the gardens on Monday 4th July (Hurrah!). There is no pedestrian access to cross the site. You will still be able to enter the hall and church but it may not be through the main door.

If you would like any plants from the gardens please help yourselves. A donation towards the cost of the new plants would be appreciated. Site clearance will not begin for a few days so you have time to bag a bargain!

Please DO NOT take any of the lavender plants from in front of the consecrated garden, by the entrance path, as they will be reused.



PCC Meeting Tuesday 28th June 2022

PCC met on Tuesday 28 June and we made decisions around finances which include charging for the utilities used when people hire our facilities. We also had an update on the interregnum and the interviews for our new vicar will take place later this month. To read the minutes from PCC meeting in May, click below.

Eco Church: Recycling tablet blister packs

Some single use plastics are difficult to stop using and one of them is the blister packs all our tablets come in. Superdrug has set up a scheme through Terracycle, to recycle them, while raising funds that are donated to Marie Curie. Our nearest Superdrug store, taking part in this, is in Newcastle, on Northumberland Street. If you would like to recycle your empty blister packs, please put them in the box, under the table in the vestibule. (No plastic or paper bags and no cardboard drug boxes, just the blister packs please.) These will then be taken to be recycled. Marion


Eco Church: National Bats in Churches Survey

St. Mary’s was approached earlier in the year to take part in the above survey. This is happening next month. In the afternoon of Monday 25th July a volunteer for the survey will be coming to do an inspection of the church, for any bat activity. Bat detection equipment, will be left in the chancel. This will be active from 7pm and overnight, on the 25th and 26th and will pick up any bat and any other noises. There are no meetings or gatherings on these two evenings and leaving the church in complete silence would be the ideal situation. If you do have to enter the church for any reason, please be aware of the noise detection equipment. I will let you know the outcome. Marion.


The Rev'd Canon Richard Hill

Please remember The Rev’d Canon Richard Hill in your prayers. Eileen served her title with Richard at All Saints’ Gosforth from 1993-1996. Yesterday Richard celebrated his 50 years anniversary of ordination to the priesthood and we thank God for his ministry in this diocese and beyond.
