Mixing Bowl

Mixing Bowl is an open community where we creatively explore spirituality and what Christian faith, art and community looks like outside of the traditional church context. We engage on the themes of the SAW artistic programme, delve deeper into the meaning and significance behind SAW projects, and give time for reflection and prayer.

In light of government recommendations concerning the Coronavirus pandemic, Mixing Bowl’s face to face gatherings will be cancelled for the foreseeable future due. We will review this decision as the situation evolves but will not meet in person until restrictions ease and it becomes safe to do so.

We now gather on Zoom on the first and third Tuesday of each month, 7-8pm – email enquiries@saw-newcastle.org for joining instructions. We also continue to keep in touch via our Whatsapp group (email enquiries@saw-newcastle.org to request to be added), the Facebook group, plus regular mailings out to your inbox and postbox. To receive these, you need to sign up to our mailing list (tick Mixing Bowl as one of your interests, plus opt in to post and email communications) if you haven’t done so already.

We wish you all the best during these difficult times.
