Forward Together in Hope



FORWARD TOGETHER IN HOPE is a renewal programme for the Catholic Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. Every Catholic in the Diocese has been invited to be part of the discussion on the future shape of the Church in the area and to consider how best to enable viable and flourishing worshipping communities to thrive into the future.


The current proposal, which has the consensus of parishioners, is that the following five parishes should form a Partnership to work together in the future:

  • St Bede's
  • St Matthew's
  • St Joseph's
  • St Mary's
  • St Aloysius and St James, Hebburn


The proposals will be considered by the Bishop and his team in January 2017.
