Welcome to the Church of St John the Baptist, Grainger Street, Newcastle
St John’s is a peaceful and friendly church in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. We worship in the catholic tradition of the Church of England, with a high standard of choral liturgy maintained by our excellent choir.
Due to the current severity of the pandemic, St John’s is sadly closed for worship and public visits until further notice. We look forward to being able to welcome you when it once again safe to do so. While we remain closed, we will upload recordings of Solemn High Mass to our YouTube channel.
In normal times, St John’s is open to visitors most days of the week, and all are welcome at all of our services. We hold a Solemn High Mass every Sunday at 10:00 at the Nave Altar and a Mass every Thursday at 10:00 at the High Altar. The church is set in pleasant and attractive gardens, enjoyed by the local community and visitors to the city alike.
We also host a wide variety of concerts and other events throughout the year, including a regular lunchtime recital series on the first Saturday of the month. Our Church Hall is available for the use of community groups to hire throughout the week.
