Working together with the other Churches in Blaydon is very important for us at St Cuthbert’s, particularly in our work in the community. Together with Trinity Methodist, St Joseph’s Catholic church and the Salvation Army presence we employ a part-time Community Worker who leads our Community Larder and several other local projects.
The Community Larder was set up in 2021 and is open Wednesday 1.30-3.00pm and Friday 9.30-11.00am. Anyone is eligible to come and receive food at these times, for a small donation. We receive food donations from the congregations and fresh food from local suppliers that would otherwise be wasted. The Larder is situated at the corner of West View and Shibdon Road, part of St Joseph’s presbytery.
