Pretty little church in Newcastle city centre. Worth a visit if you are passing. The stained glass windows are lovely.

This church is often ignored by people hurrying past. Dont be one of them. Pop inside. It's a place dedicated to living the Christian life in the city centre. There's loads happening there. And you can sit and let the world rush on by.
