Be a part of it - Nurture and spiritual growth

 

In addition to our daily worship, there are a variety of opportunities for exploring and developing faith. The regular ones include:

 

nic@noon - Sundays at 12 noon in the Lantern Cafe - nourishing, informing and challenging discussion on a wide range of topics, with food! Follow us on Facebook atwww.facebook.com/nicatnoon; open to people of any faith and none.

Opening the Scriptures - the Thursday Bible Study from 11.45am until 12.30pm (or just before) in the Education Centre, is usually based on the Gospel reading for the coming Sunday (which can be found on the weekly notes)

Sunday School - for children aged from about 3 - 14, every Sunday in term time, during the 10am Communion service, in the Education Centre. Children leave the service after the Collect and return during the Peace - and in between there are a range of activities, stories and discussions suitable for all ages, and a drink and a biscuit.
Parents are welcome to either leave their children or stay with them.

Rebels - for over 13s - meets roughly monthly, around 6pm, usually somewhere in the Cathedral, for games, films, discussions and fellowship. To join the Facebook group

Lent and Advent - there are a number of special activities on offer at these times, and details can be found on the 'Events' page.

Other courses -  information about courses and activities in other churches in the City can often be found in the Cathedral. We are also pleased to support the Diocesan 'Faith and Life' course, and for details of this and other opportunities try www.lindisfarnertp.co.uk
Confirmation classes are offered to young people (over the age of 10) during the period between Christmas and Easter, and to adults by arrangement (contact education@stnicnewcastle.co.uk). Classes are designed to give a broad working knowledge of the Christian faith to help people decide whether to go forward - and many people join for a 'refresher' too.

Admission to Communion - the Cathedral welcomes young people from the age of about 7 who wish to receive Communion. There is a short preparation course, which is usually offered in the autumn or at other times by arrangement. Those interested must be baptised, and have the support of their parents.
