“Come, follow me” – Jesus

Matthew 4:19

Spend a year with us?

In September 2016, over 20 people in their early twenties and thirties moved to Gateshead to build something new at St. George’s Church in partnership with Holy Trinity Brompton and St Thomas Crookes.

Would you like to spend a year with the church-planting team?

We are a community of friends who believe that God makes us alive in Jesus and calls us to share that life with everyone around us. Our dream is to see Gateshead & Tyneside ‘Come Alive’.

We are looking for people who want to come and get stuck in with what God is doing in the North-East. If that sounds like you, please click below to get in touch with the team.
