Who we are


Jesmond Methodist Church is part of the Newcastle Central and East Circuit. We are a church focused on growing as a family of members and stepping out into our community to share God’s love and message to the people of Jesmond, and helping the students and young-professionals living there to develop a relationship with God through our ministry to them.

Our Minister is Rev Alison Wilkinson. She is also the Minister at Longbenton, with Balliol Youth and Community Centre, and The Holy Biscuit.  Before become a Methodist minister, Alison was an RE teacher, trained teachers and worked for the Methodist Church as a Training and Development officer. She has served in Durham and Hartlepool, before joining our Circuit in 2016.

Alison has been involved in teaching and training Christian leaders. She is passionate about nurturing discipleship, encouraging everyone to use their gifts and for the Church to demonstrate the love of God to all, in a relevant way.  She enjoys watching movies, box sets, baking, good food, and is a convert to NUFC.

Alison is supported at Jesmond by a Leadership Team made up of eight stewards. We also have a pert time Student Worker, Adam Wilkinson.

We have a weekly service at 10.45am every Sunday which is led either by our own Minister or by another preacher from within the circuit.
