Heavenfield is a special place without considering any of it’s historical significance or Christian heritage. A small church a stone’s throw from Hadrian’s Wall set on the brink of an escarpment looking over striking views of Northumberland. It’s a place of peace and thoughtfulness. A place to go and do what we find increasingly hard in our business and rush – THINK & LISTEN.

It is also a place that plays upon the conscience, where the meaning of life, why we are here and what we are do to in response to what we find becomes hard to ignore. You can find out more about the significance of Heavenfield on the world wide web or by writing to the Friend’s of St Oswald’s Church Heavenfield at: Heavenfield,
The Grange,
Newcastle Upon Tyne,
NE19 2LW.
