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.

Verse of the Day

Whoever keeps commandments keeps their life, but whoever shows contempt for their ways will die.

The DCC have given careful and prayerful consideration in deciding whether to re-open for public worship.
A clear majority supported reopening for worship.

Everyone recognises that we are at a critical point in the pandemic.
It is important to emphasise that we must continue to be very careful.
Thank you for your patience and please help us all to stay safe!

Saint Aidan’s will re-open
for public worship
