Celebration Day!

It was wonderful to share in Robert Arckless’ big day at the Cathedral on Sunday 21st April, as he was admitted to the Cathedral Chapter of St Nicholas in Newcastle as a Lay Canon. 

This followed a nomination by Bishop Martin, in recognition of Robert’s committed work in local politics, particularly as Chairman of Northumberland’s Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education and as an Equalities Champion. 

He now has his own seat in the Cathedral, but we hope he will not leave his seat in St Cuthbert’s TOO often!

Summer Fayre and BBQ

This year we deciced to make the summer fayre a luchtime event so that we could incorporate a bbq, with the meat supplied by The Amble Butchers , this was a big success.

We also had many children activities, badge making, face painting and, for the first time, two bouncy castles as well as a dance show put on by an amble dance group.

The Summer Fayre and BBQ proved to be a huge success and we raised £1,133.15.

A big THANK YOU must go to all those people who helped with the fayre and all of you who supported us by coming along.

Opening Up the Church

We had a very busy week at the end of July opening up the back of church by removing some of the pews.

This new space can be used in many ways...

  • Small scale services
  • Baptism welcoming
  • School visits
  • Exhibition space
  • Prayer table
  • Socialising with a cuppa after the Sunday morning service

Socialising  in this space after church now gives those with mobility difficulties the chance to join in, rather than sit on their own in church whilst others would be down the steps in the small choir vestry.

At the moment we do not have permission to create a new floor hence the trip hazard tape.  But despite that we are sure you will agree the church looks lovely.

Do pop in to take a look. We are open every day.

'Lindisfarne Legacy' Pop - up Exhibition

We had a lovely afternoon celebrating the opening of the 'pop-up' exhibition. The 'Lindisfarne Legacy' has been produced as part of the 'Spirit in Stone' heritage project.

The panels tell the story of the Northern Saints, especially St Cuthbert and the creation of the Lindisfarne Gospels, which is all part of the glorious heritage of Northumbria.

Our first 'Cafe Church'

Now that we have our flexible space at the back we decided to explore a new venture, that of 'Cafe Church'.

The theme was Harvest, hence the biscuit making, and it was a lovely informal time for us all to get together and worship God over a coffee!

It proved to be very successful and a busy afternoon was enjoyed by all. We wil look forward to many more.
