Jesmond Festival During Covid-19

In the absence of a Jesmond Festival 2020…

A selection of ‘Art and Crafts’ from our local schools, shown at St Hilda’s church, in recent years. 

Above are paintings and pottery made by pupils from Percy Hedley School. And also paintings by pupils from West Jesmond Primary School

The local schools take part in our Art & Craft Exhibition every year, coronavirus and lock-down has changed this for 2020. Some of the children’s work from previous years can be seen here. The two pictures above are models of characters from Roald Dahl’s books, made by pupils from West Jesmond Primary School.

The church is reopening for worship on 23rd August at 11am. Every precaution possible has been made to ensure the safety of everyone. Please join us if you are able, it is safe to do so.

Jesus calls the first disciples

Baptism of Jesus… ” I saw the Spirit come down as a dove and remain on Him.”  

Healing the Paralytic man at Capernaum, he was lowered down through the roof, because the crowds made it impossible to enter any other way.

The Feeding of the 5000

Above – The Last Supper

Below – Pilate washes his hands in front of the crowd, saying “I am innocent of this man’s blood.” 

Two robbers were crucified with Him one on His right and one on His left.  

Mary Magdalene and the other Mary found the stone rolled away and the tomb empty.  An angel of the Lord told them, ” Jesus has risen, just as He said.”

The coming of The Holy Spirit 

Prayer Cafe Every Second Thursday in the Month at 2:30pm

A very warm invitation to Prayer Cafe.

Whether you're a regular or this would be your first visit, we'd love to welcome you!


Every Second Thursday in the month we enjoy afternoon tea and each others company.  Talk among ourselves about our concerns and then offer them to God in prayer during a short friendly service, led by a minister.
