Photo of exterior of church East window central light The parish of the Sacred Heart has a reputation for being welcoming and friendly, with many varied activities for all age groups. This web site provides information about these activities and the liturgical life of the parish. Read our Parish Profile to get a flavour of who we are, what we do and how we do it.

The church is a Grade II listed building with an interesting and unusual history, having been built originally as an Anglican church. The pre-Raphaelite stained glass windows in the church were designed mainly by Edward Burne-Jones, with contributions from Ford Madox Brown and William Morris and constitute one of the best collections of stained-glass from the William Morris Company in the North of England.

Medical Aid Sacred Heart (MASH) Silver Jubilee

It's been 25 years since Medical Aid Sacred Heart first started trying to support brothers and sisters in need at home and abroad with medical aid.

To celebrate we will be holding a MASH Wine tasting, mini-auction, fun and games on Friday 27th April 2018 in the Sacred Heart Church Hall. Doors open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start. The list of items to be auctioned is available here.

All funds raised will support 5 brilliant projects:

  • Lucy’s Huddlestone fundraising to help her dance again
  • EducAid Sierra Leone
  • The Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle Refugee Project
  • Sister Dr Mary Hickey’s surgery at the Cardinal Hume Centre
  • The Child Health Africa Charity, finding a more effective way of treating Kwashiorkor - an acute form of malnutrition that kills thousands.

Wine tasting tickets are £10 a ticket.

Please spread the word and come and join us with friends and family. A great evening is guaranteed!

Tickets are available via the Mash team at the Sacred Heart Church or via email to Gerry O’Hanlon gerryohanlon@gmail.com
