The Parish Communities of St. Anthony, Walker; St. Lawrence, byker; and st. Teresa, Heaton.

Encountering Jesus, Serving all

Our parish communities are places where we encounter God through The Sacraments of the Church and through Prayer. We are Churches that offer a warm welcome to all, whether you’re a long-time resident or a visitor from afar, places where you are only a stranger once. Our Churches are safe places to come to know the Love and Healing of Jesus Christ within a joyful and supportive community

Our Story

St. Anthony Walker, St. Lawrence Byker, and St. Teresa’s Heaton have been pillars of faith and community in Newcastle for generations. Each church has a rich history of serving the spiritual and social needs of their congregations, while fostering a sense of belonging and purpose.

Parish Groups

New Wine Prayer Group

The Family of Parishes has established a Prayer Group called ‘New Wine’, which is a Charismatic Prayer Group. The Group meets every Wednesday Evening at 6.30pm at St. Anthony’s Presbytery. There is always a time of praise, through worship music, before a time of prayer and reflection. Please feel free to come along and join us as we praise God, being guided by the Holy Spirit.

Wednesday Evenings

6.30pm – 8.00pm

Bible Study Group

The Scriptures are where we hear God speaking to us and guiding us. Here in our Family of Parishes we have a group that meets every Monday afternoon at 2pm in the meeting room at St Teresa’s to reflect upon the scriptures for the coming Sunday. Please feel free to pop along and join the group in a friendly sharing and discussion of the scriptures.

Every Monday

2.00pm – 4.00pm

The Most Holy Rosary

The Rosary is a Scripture-based prayer. It begins with the Apostles’ Creed, which summarizes the great mysteries of the Catholic faith, and is based around praying the Our Father that Jesus taught us as we hear in the Gospel. We then pray the Hail Mary, echoing the the angel’s words announcing Christ’s birth and Elizabeth’s greeting to Mary. The Mysteries of the Rosary centre on the events of Christ’s life. The repetition in the Rosary is meant to lead one into restful and contemplative prayer related to each Mystery. The gentle repetition of the words helps us to enter into the silence of our hearts, where Christ’s spirit dwells. The Rosary can be said privately or with a group. 

The Rosary is prayed every Saturday Morning after the 8.00am Mass at St. Teresa’s

Every Saturday Morning

Young Adult Prayer Group

Engage with other young members of our parish community through Prayer, Worship and Fellowship. We meet on the Last Thursday of every month in St Teresa’s Church. After our time of Worship together we then go over to St T’s Club for some social time together.
