The Holy Biscuit

About Us

Holy Biscuit is an arts organisation based in Shieldfield, Newcastle, operating on the intersection of contemporary art, faith and community activity. More often than not these worlds function in their own spheres without much interest in or knowledge of each other. Holy Biscuit brings them together under one roof. HB is not a traditional church organisation but as a creative project of The Methodist Church curates and supports exhibitions, workshops, events, screenings, faith activities and discussions as part of a contemporary arts programme which examines aspects of faith along with other social, political and cultural strands and themes. As we grow and evolve, we are looking to develop new ways of working particularly exploring what it means to be a gallery and a community particularly within the context of socially engaged practice, activism as well as theological reflection.
