Mission Shaped Intro
The next Mission Shaped Intro (msi) course will be taking place Tuesday 18th September for five consecutive weeks. Although it's hosted by the South West Tyneside Circuit, the course is open to anyone. Many of those who've done msi have found it very helpful. I’ve seen many people have their eyes opened to new possibilities in their local churches and communities. msi is ideal for anyone who is interested in thinking about mission in an apt and relevant way today.


We hope you will find what you’re looking for and be  encouraged by what you read! 

The Newcastle District is one of immense diversity. The City of Newcastle is the economic and cultural centre of the region and with the City of Sunderland, forms the main centre of  the population. In addition to these urban areas the District has an interesting mix of market towns, former mining areas and an extensive rural area. 

The District comprises the northern part of County Durham, Tyne and Wear, all of Northumberland and part of the Scottish Borders. It covers an area 90 miles north to south and 50 miles east to west. 

There are 12 Circuits and you will find details of each of these on this website. Within these Circuits are approximately 180 church buildings of which about 25% are used in partnership with those of other denominations.
