Practical Support

Tabitha's Place

Tabitha's Place is a service to the community of Benwell and surrounding areas. It provides free, quality clothing for children aged 0-12.

We're open every Monday 11:00-13:00 at The Sanctuary. There's always a cuppa and some cake waiting for you!

Benwell Pop Up Pantry

In light of ever rising costs and financial challenges for all we have partnered with Life Vineyard Church to run the Benwell Pop Up Pantry.

Here you can purchase food and household goods at half the price you would normally pay. We're here to be a helping hand so come and join us at The Sanctuary 11:00-13:00 every Thursday!

You'll also be able to grab a cuppa and some cake!

We work in connection with the Newcastle NW Debt Centre which is based at Regent Chapel Christian Fellowship, Regent Farm Road, Gosforth, Newcastle Upon Tyne (easily accessed by bus or metro).
