Our Parish Church

We are very fortunate to be located next door to our local parish church. Sacred Heart Church, Byermoor was built in 1876 to meet the needs of a growing Roman Catholic community in the surrounding area. It is situated in a fantastic location with beautiful views over-looking the Derwent Valley and on a clear day, the distant Cheviot Hills can be seen. More information on the history of the Church and the local area can be found on the Sunniside Local History website.

Times of Masses are as follows:

  • Monday at 7.00pm
  • Saturday Vigil Mass at 4.30pm

Address Burnopfield Byermoor Newcastle Upon Tyne NE16 6NU

Phone: 01207 270226 (only answered when someone is present in church)

Considering Baptism for your Child?

The Sacrament of Baptism is the beginning of your child’s journey in becoming part of the community of Sacred Heart Byermoor, St Joseph’s Stanley and St Patrick’s Dipton. It is the gateway to all of the other Sacraments and is a serious decision that should not be taken lightly. We therefore now request that you undertake a Baptism Preparation session prior to agreeing a date for Baptism with our Clergy.

As a family of parishes, we welcome parents and children into our faith community. If you would like to discuss the Sacrament of Baptism for your child, please contact:
