As we have grown we have developed life-giving links with New Wine, Fresh Expressions and Fusion. We are strengthened by our links with other churches, both at home and abroad. We love our deepening link with St Thomas’ Philadelphia, Sheffield, whilst abroad we have connections with Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship, Canada; Bethel Redding, California and the International House of Prayer in Kansas City.

On Tyneside we are committed to Together in Christ, a cross church fellowship of 40 senior local church leaders, who meet to pray weekly and plan and cooperate on major Kingdom ventures. In the diocese we deeply appreciate our growing commitment to the Central Deanery, a group of Anglican churches of all flavours. We are so grateful to Bishop Martin, Archdeacon Geoff Miller and Area Dean Philip Cunningham for their continuing encouragement and ‘can do’ approach to their very own ‘Fresh Expression Parish Church’!
