A BEACON OF LIGHT
Become a Friend
Keeping the spirit of St Nicholas alive
The Friends of St Nicholas is an independent charity (registered charity no.1053260) fundraising to maintain, beautify and celebrate the heritage of Newcastle Cathedral. Its name comes from the Cathedral’s patron saint, famed for his generosity and charitable giving.
The Friends have recently contributed to restoring the Cathedral’s antique virge (pictured below) to its former glory. They also made possible the Cathedral’s latest guidebook and the striking new ‘liturgical furniture’, which you’ll see used in weekly services.
Benefits of being a Friend
- Members receive a 10% discount in the Cathedral’s retail space and a quarterly newsletter outlining recent and proposed developments.
- The annual general meeting held each spring in the Cathedral is a vibrant event that showcases guest speakers from various fascinating backgrounds.
- The group’s calendar includes a programme of outings and events, providing members with opportunities to connect, share common interests, and enjoy exclusive tours of local historic and cultural landmarks.
