October 4: News from the Mercy Hub….

Over the summer holidays, the Mercy Hub ran a very successful holiday club, providing families with food and activities for their children. One of the activities was online, interactive bible storytelling. We are continuing to run these sessions now the holidays are over and would like to invite other children of primary school age to join in. If you are interested, they take place via Zoom on Saturday mornings at 10.30am. Please contact Jeremy on and he will send you the link.

The Mercy Hub is setting up a telephone befriending service for anyone who is feeling lonely or isolated in their own home. Our volunteers will call once a week for a chat and to see how that person is getting on. If you or someone you know is interested in using this service, please contact the Mercy Hub Coordinator on 07904 881430 or
Please note that this is not the same as the Cathedral Listening Service, which provides more specialised support for people who need someone to talk to. They can be contacted on 0191 232 6953 option 9.

Who we are:

We are a project based in St Mary's Cathedral that is working to end suffering, loneliness and distress in Newcastle and beyond.

What we do:

We support the homeless, the lonely, the young and anyone in need. We do this by supporting people to access services, provide advice, offer opportunities to meet new people and learn new skills. Only through the support of volunteers who share their time, skills and knowledge can we make a difference to people's lives
