A warm welcome awaits visitors. Our vision is to be a source of inspiration and compassion for the community.

St Aidan’s is an Anglican church, situated in Brunton Park, Gosforth. We affirm that the Church’s mission, in obedience with Holy Scripture is to proclaim the unfailing love of God in every generation.

We believe this to be Good News for all people. We hope to be a lively, inclusive and outward looking church serving the community. Worship is a mixture of the traditional and informal with activities for children. Sermons explore the meaning of the Gospel for today. We are particularly concerned to use the church building for the good of the community.

Prayer For Afghanistan
Lord in this time of change,
when the lives of so many are being torn apart.
We pray for your blessing
For those who evacuate
and for those who wait for what is next,
for those who are foreign nationals,
and those bone-deep with history in the hills,
for faithful journalists still reporting,
and medical facilities desperate
for blocked supplies,
for all faith communities
and their holy places,
for the afghan elder who has seen much
and the child born today
living in a new reality.
For our government it is a time for prayerful humility,
a time to display generosity, virtue, and courage,
a time to give hope to those in despair.
Lord breath your peace into the hearts of those who suffer and those who oppress.

Adapted and added to from a prayer by Rev. Maren C. Tirabassi  (her words in italics)
