Middlesbrough Centre of Mission
Middlesbrough 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 or congregation and was the last Anglican worship on the estate. The last time the church met there was in October 2006 and their building was demolished in 2007. But the legacy lives on! God is already doing a lot on these estates and the Lead Evangelist, Jane Emson, joins to help this grow, as she works alongside Father Terry Leathley and local laity. Jane is starting a New Worshiping Community (church plant) for 20s-40s on the estate. She has gathered a small team and the new church opened in October 2019 and are meeting for prayer. Jane also helps at Tommy's Youth Club for 11-14 year olds, runs school assemblies and is involved with Feast of Fun, which provides activities and healthy food for low-income families across Middlesbrough. She is beginning to set up a community forum on the Thorntree estate as well. The Middlesbrough Centre of Mission was launched in September 2019 as a strategic partnership between the Diocese of York and Church Army.
