With the encouragment of the Bishop of Newcastle, on Monday 5 December 2016 The Society in Diocese of Newcastle organized a Study Day on the Pope Francis' encyclical Evangelii Gaudium (the Joy of the Gospel). The day was led by the Right Revd Norman Banks, Bishop of Richborough, and the Right Revd Alison White, Bishop of Hull, and was attended by seventy clergy and laity from across the diocese. This event was made possible through the generosity of The Newcastle upon Tyne Church of England Institute Trust and The Newcastle Diocesan Evangelism budget.
