With the support and encouragement of Together Newcastle,  churches and parishes are becoming more connected with the concerns and issues of their communities.  They are getting involved in all sorts of different activities that bring people together, where relationships are formed and stories are shared.  Through the forming of these relationships and connections we are able to share our journey of faith stories. Coupled with the willingness and commitment to practical action and working with hope  the local church contributes to the flourishing of its neighbourhood and those within it.
