Newcastle part 2

We went to see Action Station in South Sheilds, and they took us on a tour round the building which consisted of a credit union and debt counselling service, a drop in cafe, a workers education association, a detached Youth worker, courses for local people in computing and various skills and a charity to support people with cancer.
It was wonderful to see so many christ inspired projects under one roof! I had a lovely chat with one of the ministers there about the Youth Participation Strategy and a converstaion with an anglican vicar about how we have set a fantastic standard, and they really ought to follow!

We then went to Morpeth to meet some of the flood victims. Hearing the stories of their last year was really informative for me. (Plus the chocolate caramel slices were lovely!)
