MINE Priorities for the Year

You will be aware that MINE (Mission Initiative Newcastle East) is the formal structure that allows the churches of Byker and Walker to work together. Although most worship and pastoral needs are addressed at the parish level, other things we do are primarily the result of us working together. Schools work and children and youth work are examples of this, as is the Debt Advice project. Other things are Confirmation, Bible Studies, Lent and seasonal programs that bring us together. There is likely more we could be doing.

Is there anything you would like MINE to be doing for the benefit of all the Churches? The clergy and ministers of MINE meet regularly to plan ahead, which they will be doing in a few weeks. If you have any suggestions, speak with clergy or readers about it.

New Archdeacon

The Revd Mark Wroe has been appointed Archdeacon of Northumberland, to replace the Ven Geoff Miller who became Cathedral Dean. Mark has been acting Archdeacon for a while, but he will return to his parish of Holy Trinity Jesmond for a few months to say goodbye, and then be officially inducted on 24th March at the Cathedral. We pray for him as he prepares to take on these new responsibilities.

There is now a place to light candles as a way of marking our prayers for those on our minds and in our hearts. This is a trial for a month or so. Let wardens or know if you find it helpful.
