Gospel Communities

Gospel Communities – also known as home groups or small groups – are the primary way Cornerstone Newcastle grow in knowing Jesus and making Jesus known together.

While Sunday meetings are based in Newcastle city centre, Gospel Communities meet in 6 residential areas across Newcastle and Gateshead on Wednesdays or Thursdays, usually in each other’s homes.

We help each other know Jesus more by praying, reading the bible and discussing life together – as we support each other in the ordinary and extraordinary aspects of our lives. We make Jesus known by finding ways to serve our local communities, places of education or work and the wider city by sharing the gospel and helping practically.

Drop us a message if you would like to join one of our Gospel Communities.


    We meet on Thursday nights at different homes in Jesmond at 7pm, starting with dinner together. We either have a bible study, run something within the community or socialise together.  We want to encourage everyone in their faith, whether they are new to faith, or have been a Christian for a long time. As a group we want to be a welcoming place for people to bring non Christian friends.

    Led by Neil and Sasha Godon, Miranda Crawford and Tom Hopper


    We are a Bible-centred Gospel Community and each week we share food together and discuss what God is doing in our lives and the lives of those around us. We are excited to be on mission together so that Christ will be on display in our Gospel Community and more and more in the wider community. We meet on Thursdays at 7pm in the Heaton area. All are welcome!

  • Newcastle west

    At the Newcastle West GC Andy and Vikki Pestell lead and meet in the west end of the city. We mainly consist of couples, a few young families and a few students and seek to involve ourselves in each others' lives and reaching our friends and neighbours with the gospel. We meet on Thursday nights at 19:30. We would love to have you along. 

  • gateshead

    Dave and Jasmine Parr lead the Gateshead Gospel Community group every Wednesday evening. Our desire is to know Jesus more through bible study and fellowship together, and to make Jesus known by exploring what it means to be on mission in our local community. We usually have fellowship and food at our Gospel Community evenings starting at 19:30.

    Fenham GC meets on a Thursday at 19.30 - we want to build deep and honest relationships with God and each other; to encourage us to reach out to neighbours and friends with the love of God. Everyone is welcome!

  • Newcastle North

    Newcastle North meets in Gosforth on a Thursday night at 7:30pm. Our GC offers a brew, cake and a relaxed environment with a focus on friendship. We aim to spur each other on in our walk with God as we impact the community where we live.
