SEE US IN A NEW LIGHT
Welcome from the Dean
To be honest (and we admit that we are very biased) my colleagues and I are passionate about Newcastle Cathedral. We love its very stones, the stories they tell, the people it celebrates, its peace and perhaps most of all the song it sings.
If you have ever visited the city, or if you live locally, the chances are that you already recognise the Cathedral’s iconic Lantern Tower that has adorned Newcastle’s magnificent city-scape for generations. For ‘Geordies’ catching its sight from the train window lets you know that you are home; for visitors it is a beacon to welcome you to the friendliest city in England!
It may, however, just be that you have not yet ventured through the Cathedral doors on Amen Corner. We know how easy it is to fall in love with this ancient place and we want to share it with everyone, including you. We promise that you will find here a treasure trove of fascinating artefacts that tell the city’s story, in and through the lives of its people; a living vibrant, faithful community; a calm and special place for reflection and we hope the warmest of welcomes. We look forward to meeting you very soon.
In the name of the Sacred Trinity we, who have found in this place a home,
bid you welcome.
With the Father’s love we open wide our doors.
In the name of his Son we invite you to enter.
Empowered by the Spirit we extend our friendship.
May we welcome you as Christ himself and through God’s good grace may you see Christ in us.
