“See, I am doing a new thing!” (Isaiah 43:19 NIV)

CELEBRATE is a Catholic Charismatic conference for young and old alike, open to individuals and families to experience the joy of the Gospel and a friendly North East welcome!

2018 will mark the fifth Celebrate North East weekend and we are expectant that God will do some marvellous new things. We are blessed that St Joseph's school, Hebburn, is our venue. During these times, people are searching for strong leadership, for light, hope and peace. We believe Jesus, who is full of the Holy Spirit, is the One who can lead us, guide us and show us what it means to be fully human and full alive and enable us to live a life of love.

Each day will be packed with inspiring talks, challenging and lively workshops, as well as lively praise and worship to enable the Holy Spirit to do a new thing for us. We are looking forward to welcoming you, especially if you have not previously attended a Celebrate North East weekend. We are  blessed to welcome great speakers, great youth ministry and a lively liturgy in which all are encouraged to play their part.

If you have attended before, why not invite a friend to experience faith in a new way? We can't wait to see you there.
