Petertide Ordinations 2022

Congratulations to our 13 Ordinands who will become Deacons and Priests this Petertide. The weekend of ordinations over 2 to 3 July will see eight people begin their ordained ministry as Deacons and five people join the Priesthood. Our soon-to-be Deacons will be serving their titles in parishes across our Diocese – please give them a warm welcome if you see them in your parish. Our new Priests, who began ordained ministry as Deacons last year, will continue to serve their existing parishes as Curates. Read more about our Ordinands here.

The Ordinations which are taking place at Newcastle Cathedral will be livestreamed on the cathedral’s You Tube channel – links below.

Archbishops speak the words of survivors of church-based abuse

A new initiative focused on survivors of faith-based abuse and those who support them has been launched this week by the Diocese of Newcastle. ‘If I Told You, What Would You Do?’ is a suite of accessible materials and resources, including a series of seven videos with more than 50 people reading the words of survivors, including the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby and the Archbishop of York, the Most Reverend Stephen Cottrell. It is a response to recent guidance issued by the Church of England to church officers and church bodies on how to respond well to victims and survivors of all kinds of abuse, has been part funded by the charity Safe Spaces.

The launch, led by Bishop Mark, took place at Newcastle Cathedral on 23 June and for more about the project click here.

 

WERS Summer Newsletter

Included a visit by Bishop Mark – and a call for toiletries and plastic bags

Welcome to our Summer Newsletter

We hope you are enjoying some of this summer sunshine!

Whilst the people we work with face unprecedented challenges and the demands on services increase, we are full of hope and determination to develop and improve the support and opportunities we offer to people seeking sanctuary on Tyneside.  

Late last year we launched a new strategy, which outlines our approach and priorities for delivering this work in order to bring about positive change to the lives of people seeking asylum here in the North East.

We have developed several new projects and are developing existing ones to tackle the challenges ahead.
Many of you will be aware that the cruel new Nationality and Borders Act is now law.  Whilst we will continue to oppose this, and please read more of this below, we will also continue to develop and adapt our projects to best meet the needs of the people we support in an increasingly hostile environment. 

This includes the development of a new community campaigns group which has become a platform for the people we work with to have their voices heard amongst communities and local leaders, an awareness raising project that is reaching out to school children to promote understanding and compassion for people seeking sanctuary, how a local partnership is bringing more opportunities to the people we work with, and how our casework team has grown and is working in different ways. And we now have a series of colourful murals that have cheered up our outdoor spaces! 

We have also set up anadvisory panel at WERS. The group is made up of people with lived experience of the asylum system. They have been part of making some initial changes at WERS over the past few months and they will continue to shape how we work

We still deliver our core support services, and these range from providing essential financial and material support, and supporting people to understand their rights, to facilitating connections in communities, whilst we also undertake the vital work raising awareness and campaigning to promote understanding and compassion for people seeking sanctuary on Tyneside, as this government continues to do the opposite.  

Call for toiletries and plastic bags
As part of our drop-ins, we provide people with toiletries and are always in need of these! If you are able to provide any of the following we would be very grateful!
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Shower gel
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Mouthwash
  • Deodorant
  • Shaving gel
  • Sanitary towels
  • Hand soap
  • Bar soap

If you have any plastic bags that you do not need, please keep us in mind as we always need bags for people to carry their toiletries.

If you are able to donate any of the above, please come along to one of our drop-in sessions on a Monday or a Wednesday from 10am to 1pm and our volunteers will be there to happily accept them!

Thank you for all your continued support.

Christian Muslim Prayers for Peace
