We are in the process of re-branding, so forgive us if you can’t find all the information you want here! Our new name is Sanctuary church; We have a new website which will be coming soon. In the meantime, you can send us an email to or come visit us at 10.30am on a Sunday morning (109-111 Whitley Road, Whitley Bay, NE262ET). Thanks!

Main Header

The Bay Church, Whitley Bay, in the North East of England, is a friendly community-based church that exists to help bring the reality of Jesus Christ to each and every individual.

Together we are committed to being a family of faith regardless of age, gender, race, education or wealth. We seek to encourage Kingdom growth in the local area, nationally and internationally, working with other churches and Christian groups.

You’ll find out a little about who we are and what we do from this site, but the best way to get to know us is to pay us a visit!

We meet every Sunday at 10:30am.
