How to Find Us
City Church meets at The CastleGate, situated in the heart of Newcastle, a short walk from both the monument and the Quayside.
There is lots of parking locally in either of the adjacent NCP or Quayside car parks (which have a fixed all day rate every Sunday). We are well located for anyone coming by car, metro or on foot. Both monument and manors metro station are within 5 minutes walk.

From Monument Metro/The Centre of Newcastle (approx. 5-7 minutes)
Walk down Grey Street, turning left after the Theatre Royal onto Market street. At the next junction (opposite the old fire station) turn right along Pilgrim Street. Walk down Pilgrim Street until you are within sight of the Tyne Bridge, crossing on to the Pilgrim Street/Swan House Roundabout (a large pedestrianized area). Continue across the roundabout, staying on the Tyne Bridge side of the building, then taking the underpass under the road, which brings you out alongside the Holy Jesus Hospital (a 400 year old Alms Building). Continue for 2 minutes, passing under a railway bridge. The CastleGate is a large victorian red brick building immediately ahead on the left hand side of Melbourne Street. Continue up the street until you reach the Atrium entrance. Welcome to City Church!

Leave the station, walking straight ahead onto the Manors Business Park. Continue through the car park and at the end turn left onto Trafalgar Street.

Turn left up Melbourne Street, walking along the side of our building. Access is via the Atrium entrance. We look forward to seeing you!
