Why Partnerships?


BISHOP Séamus describes our Partnerships as: "A group of parishes agreeing to work together, to share resources, both human and material, to become stronger and better equipped for furthering the Kingdom of God."



Forward Together in Hope was a three-year process of development and renewal across the Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle, fully funded by grants from external organisations, for whose generous support the Diocese is very grateful.
