The Church of St. Bede was originally opened in 1970 to serve the growing population of Framwellgate Moor, Pity Me and Newton Hall, the original building was closed in 2011 due to the discovery of structural faults. Weekday services (Word and Communion or Holy Mass) usually take place at 9:15am, in St. Bede’s Chapel in St. Godric’s RC Primary School.  Please check the bulletin for this week’s weekday service times.
