They’d lived for two years at Ushaw Moor while he trained for the ministry in Durham, are delighted to be back in the North-East and to have more chance of watching Newcastle United. “I sort of married into it,” said Richard.They’re interested in Celtic Christianity, in football, folk music, arts, theatre, bread baking, politics and folk music, though not necessarily in that order, hope to work collaboratively to bring “hope, love and healing”to their communities.“It’s a big job and we can’t do it on our own,” said Richard. “It’s about building teams, working with our partner churches, being patient.”

Ushaw College – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Ushaw College (St Cuthbert’s College, Ushaw) is a Roman Catholic seminary, founded at Douai  as the English College, Douai in France in 1568, which moved to Ushaw Moor, four miles west of Durham in England  in 1808 and became a Licensed Hall of the University of Durham  in 1968. It is independent of the University but offers courses validated by the University. Both Church and lay students study at the college.

Some of the college’s buildings are no longer used, but some have been converted into a conference centre. The main college buildings are grade II listed, however the College Chapel is grade II* and the Chapel of St Michael is grade I. The Refectory was designed and built by Pugin, as was the original chapel although this was later dismantled and replaced by the present building designed by Dunn and Hansom. The original college buildings (1804-1808) were designed by James Taylor.
