The city of Newcastle - and its neighbour Gateshead, south of the River Tyne - is one of the great metropolitan boroughs of the north of England. In the Middle Ages Newcastle was home to a community of Carmelite friars (until the Reformation). Growing thanks to its industrial heritage, the city is now celebrated for its vibrant arts scene, architecture and tourism (not to mention football!).
The community is very involved in regional and national events of the Carmelite Third Order, including the annual Day for the Carmelite Family in Carlisle, and the annual Lay Carmelite retreat to Minsteracres in County Durham.
The Newcastle community gathers at 1.30pm (doors open 1pm) on the 3rd Saturday of the month at Corpus Christi Church at Kelvin Grove in Gateshead.
Corpus Christi Church, Kelvin Grove, Gateshead
