around 2008 Mayfield Baptist had a dream of planting a new church in the Hunter. In 2012 a group of people started meeting and praying to seek God's will for a plant. After a number of months it was felt that God was leading the team to Jesmond. over the end of 2012 and into 2013 a number of people moved into the area and we started the Kid's club at Heaton school. Through this time we met weekly for prayer and study, which led into a Wednesday night service in a home. In September 2013 we held our first full public service in the Heaton school hall. Over this time the Kid's club continued to grow. Easter 2015 saw us move to the garage at Fraser st because we found the hall to big and open. God has blessed us with new people and lots of good times, and we have seen his hand at work in the lives of people. Each second week we set up and give out free food in the park next to the shopping centre. We have made many new friends and had lots of good conversations. We continue to work with Mayfield as we seek to see God's kingdom grow in the Jesmond area, trusting Him to lead us to those He is bringing to Him.
