Advance Movement

Advance is a global movement of churches, partnering together to advance the Gospel through the planting and strengthening of churches.


Advance’s vision is to emulate the book of Acts today, through its partnership of churches. With the same commission from the same God, powered by the same Spirit - but with benefits of the whole bible, 2,000 years of experience plus immense technology, how much more can be done to make Jesus known today?


As part of Advance, Cornerstone Newcastle seeks to bless and support churches throughout the world to help them advance the gospel with our resources, talents and friendship. Likewise, Cornerstone is regularly supported by partner churches in our mission to advance the gospel and make Jesus known.

Safe Families for Children

Safe Families for Children (Safe Families) support isolated families in times of crisis, to avoid them reaching their breaking point and seeing children sent into care.


Cornerstone Newcastle partner with Safe Families to help these vulnerable families. Volunteers from Cornerstone become Family Friends, provide respite in times of crisis and provide resources or practical skills to help families stay on their feet.


In times of crisis, most families turn to friends or relatives for support – but there are many families struggling to thrive without this support network. Stabilising families before they can reach breaking point is essential in reducing the number of children going into care – Safe Families has support 4,600 children in the UK since 2013.


Vikki Pestell is Safe Families’ Church Coordinator for Cornerstone Newcastle; drop us a message if you’re interested in volunteering.
