Translation into Farsi every week
Venerable Bede, West Road, NE4 8AP
Please note this service will move to St James Church (NE15 6RS) from 23rd April Location info > Accessibility info > You are welcome whether you know what you believe or not, or are just curious. Do not worry if you are unfamiliar with the church; you can watch, listen, and join in as you feel comfortable. We try to make our worship as welcoming as possible and everyone is invited to stay for refreshments and to say hello after the service in the hall.
Usually, we meet for Holy Communion, or mass/eucharist/Lord’s Supper- whatever you know it as, the belief that God meets us in ordinary reality is the heart of our community life.
We ordinarily have translation into Farsi for our many Persian and Kurdish members. Children are always welcome and primary school age children are invited to join the junior church if they wish.
If you need assistance or have any questions feel free to ask us on the day or contact us anytime.
