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! See our service times.

The Bay Church is affiliated with AsOne North East, the Order of Saint Leonard (which is part of Churches Together England) and Whitley Bay Churches Together

Street Pastors

Street Pastors was pioneered in London in 2003 by Les Isaac. Now, there are more than 300 towns and cities around the UK have a Street Pastors team.

In Whitley Bay, the first patrol was on December 3rd 2011. It now also covers Tynemouth. It involves Christian volunteers who are out in the community Helping, Caring and Listening. Their main role is to watch out for and care for vulnerable people.

Order of St Leonard

Very Rev Alan belongs to the Order of Saint Leonard, which has the objective to bring all Christians of differing denominations and streams, without leaving their distinctive groupings, into fellowship for prayer, mission and to help the disadvantaged. The Bay Church is proud to be affiliated with the Order of Saint Leonard (which is now part of Churches Together England).

AsOne

AsOne North East is a relational network that connects and encourages revival leaders across the North East of England. It expands God’s Kingdom by helping to build relationships between leaders, ministries and organisations, and to equip them to bring transformation within their spheres of influence.

Founded in February 2012, The BAY Foodbank aims to provide emergency food provision to individuals or families experiencing a financial crisis.
