Northern Cross needs you!       Please support us with an annual subscription -          £20 online or £36 for the print edition direct to your door

NORTHERN CROSS is a not-for-profit organisation and a charitable trust. We rely entirely on revenue from newspaper sales, annual subscriptions and advertising to continue publishing.

We now face significant financial difficulties - like many businesses - as we are unable to sell the print edition in churches. We encourage you to help us by taking out an annual online subscription, at £20, or an annual print subscription - where the Northern Cross is delivered direct to your door, at £36 (this includes post and packing).

You can pay by bank transfer online - please email: for the details. When asked for a reference, please use your name - to allow us to verify your payment, then email

To pay by cheque, please make cheques payable to 'Northern Cross' and post them to Subscriptions Dept, Northern Cross, c/o  WM Fortune & Son, Collingwood House, Church Square, Hartlepool, TS24 7EN.


We thank you all for your continued support.

DUE to the COVID-19 pandemic, this edition of Northern Cross is online only.

Thank you warmly for your support - and we encourage you to continue to send your stories to us. We would particularly like to hear about your experiences of people and partnerships helping one another during this time.

If you know someone who does not have access to the internet but would like to read the latest issue, please call 01429 274 408 and leave a message with your name and telephone number, and we will call you back.

With all best wishes,


Emma Little, Editor                                              Fr Dennis Tindall, Chairman
