Middlesbrough Centre of Mission
The Middlesbrough Centre of Mission was launched in September 2019 as a strategic partnership between the Diocese of York and Church Army. The centre of mission is based on the Brambles Farm and Thorntree estates in Middlesbrough, which are in the top 1% most deprived neighbourhoods in the country. St Thomas Church (Brambles Farm estate) no longer has a building since it was demolished in 2007 but the congregation have continued to worship and serve the community faithfully through outreach since then. God is already doing a lot on these estates and Lead Evangelist, Jane Emson is joining in to help this grow, alongside Father Terry Leathley and local laity. The centre of mission has started a New Worshiping Community (church plant) for 20s-40s on the Brambles Farm estate and Jane is involved with other exciting ministries already taking place to reach out to the local community. One of these is the Given with God’s Love coffee van project run by Father Terry which takes a coffee van out onto the estate three times a week to bless people on the estates. You can find out more about the Middlesbrough Centre of Mission by reading their latest newsletter.
