The Parish of Ponteland

Welcome to The Parish of Ponteland

Drive north west from Newcastle upon Tyne, past the airport, into Northumberland, and you come into Ponteland. Across the bridge, looking beautiful across Coates’ Green, is the church of St Mary the Virgin. If you continue north and then turn left along lanes that get smaller and smaller, Holy Saviour, Milbourne, is surrounded by beautiful countryside. But our churches are more than just beautiful buildings – they are living communities. Regular worship, on Sunday and during the week, brings together a diverse community – we aim for worship done well, with good music and thoughtful preaching.

There are opportunities to study, opportunities for friendship - coffee mornings and social events. We welcome baptisms, weddings and funerals – click on the Worship tab for more details, seeking to serve our community, and beyond.

We take our Safeguarding responsibilities very seriously - click here for more details.

We try and do all this in the name of Jesus, to welcome all in God’s name. To find out more about Jesus and the Christian faith please click here. Please explore this website, and find out more of the opportunities for you.

Please find a message from Bishop Christine:-

To all clergy, Lay Chairs and members of Bishop’s Council

Dear brothers and sisters,

As you know, we are entering a significant period of change in our life together, as we shortly say farewell to our Dean, Chris Dalliston and begin the process to appoint a new Dean of Newcastle in due course.  In order to enable us to continue moving forward with our vision and strategy, growing church bringing hope, I am making some interim appointments to cover the vacancy period.  It has already been announced that Geoff Miller will be Acting Dean at the Cathedral during the vacancy.

The timing and scale of the current Cathedral development project is such that it needs a full time Acting Dean to give the Cathedral the support needed during this exciting and demanding development. I am therefore very pleased to announce that, from the 8th January 2018, Mark Wroe will be Acting Archdeacon of Northumberland during this time, and that Tim Sanderson will be taking on the day to day leadership at Holy Trinity, Jesmond. I am truly thankful for the way in which Geoff, Mark and Tim have been so willing to help during the vacancy and I ask that you pray for them and support them in the coming months in their interim ministries.

With every blessing
+ Christine
