Jesmond Parish Church Hockey Club, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, was established by a group from Jesmond Parish Church who loved playing hockey and saw no reason why the church shouldn't support a hockey club.
In September 2002, the idea became a reality. Since being founded the club has gone from strength to strength. We have four Mens Teams: the Men's 1st Xl, who play in the NEHL Premier League, are the highest placed club in Newcastle outside of the University. For the 2016/7 season we have a new Men's 4th team in order to further offer Hockey from all from the seasoned veteran to the enthusiastic junior. We have two Ladies Teams, who play in the Northumberland Women's Hockey A and B Leagues. Last but not least, the Club has a thriving Mixed and Junior section.
As a church Club it is founded and run on Christian principles but we welcome anyone who is passionate about hockey. Consequently the aim is to play hockey competitively but fairly. As much emphasis is placed on the sportsmanship of the teams as the results of the matches. All are welcomed and encouraged to come and play regardless of background and faith.
