Church Life

Join in with life of Hillside Church

Welcome to Hillside Church

Hillside Church is located in Gateshead, just out of Newcastle upon Tyne and near the northern edge of the Diocese of Durham. It serves the communities of Byermoor, Marley Hill, Sunniside, Streetgate, Lobley Hill, Rosewood Park and Festival Park.

Two Buildings, One Church

Hillside came into being in 2004 when the parishes of All Saints, Lobley Hill, and St Cuthbert's, Marley Hill, were merged and given a new name, with the vicar of All Saints becoming vicar of the new combined parish.

Worshipping God

We are an all-age congregation and our worship is very informal in the evangelical charismatic style. All of our music is led by our worship band and we have a thriving puppet ministry and drama team which both play a major part in our services. We enjoy inspiring worship, prayer and teaching and aim to serve our local community in a variety of ways.
