The Bishop of Berwick, the Rt Rev Mark Tanner, pictured centre, with clergy and passers-by who talked about Jesus at a mission initiative in Wansbeck Square in Ashington last Saturday.

The town’s Holy Sepulchre Church took part in the initiative with other parishes across the Deanery.

It featured a prayer tree where people added prayers to paper leaves which were then to the tree.

Bishop Mark also preached at a service at the Church of England Academy the following day.
