St Nicholas is the Cathedral for the Church of England Diocese of Newcastle, which stretches from the River Tyne to the River Tweed. Christian prayer and worship are offered here daily, just as they have been on this site for over 900 years.
The Cathedral is the seat of the Bishop of Newcastle. As the “mother church” of the Diocese, we exist to support the Bishop’s mission, and teaching and pastoral ministry, across the diocese.
Our building is the focus for great Diocesan celebrations and civic services, as well as a place of quiet serenity set amid the busyness of a vibrant city. It is the spiritual home of a caring, worshipping community.
Whether you live or work in Newcastle, or visit from farther afield, we hope that you will feel very welcome here!
All are welcome to an inclusive and affirming communion service, celebrating our God-given diversity. Come and worship God as the beautiful human person you are. Join us for Pride Eucharist, 4pm on Sunday.

Bishop Christine led a moving and powerful service on Saturday afternoon for the Deaconing, and we were back again on Sunday morning for the Priesting. […]
