JOE KIRWIN, Cathedral Outreach Coordinator writes:

The Mercy Project has been approached by Newcastle City Council to become a partner in tackling the issue of Holiday Hunger and, as a result, we are hoping to set up a new project aimed at helping to feed hungry children during the summer holidays as well as providing activities, fun and games. We would like to offer this service one day a week from 11.00am - 3.00pm during the summer holidays. If you currently have enhanced DBS clearance for work with children on the Cathedral site and you would like more information about participating, Telephone: 07904 881430 or email
Come and join our new Quilting and Coffee group from 10.00am - to 12 Noon every Wednesday in the Mercy Hub. The group is open to everyone including those who are experienced in the area and anyone who would like to learn a new skill, in a relaxed and friendly setting. There is no need to book to so if you choose to attend every week or on a more casual basis, we can always accommodate you. We look forward to seeing you all there.

Who we are:

We are a new 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
