Vaheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Vaheguru Ji Ki Fateh
Welcome to the home page for Gurdwara Shaheed Baba Deep Singh Ji, Newcastle Upon Tyne. We aim to bring everyone together in the north east and to welcome them to the Gurdwara.
Objectives for Gurdwara Shaheed Baba Deep Singh Ji
To provide a place of orthodox Sikh spiritual devotion (Gurdwara) and community services for the Sikhs of North East. To be a source of education, assistance and awareness for the Sikh faith in the North-East, by advocating and promoting the three foundation principles of being a Sikh.
Seva (service to ones community service, teaches us humility and compassion)
Simran (meditation – Thanking the Lord for everything we have)
Unity (‘Unity in Diversity’- create a community spirit and Sarbat Da Bhalla (wellbeing off All) )
The Sikh faith is a universal faith for the whole of mankind. It promotes the foundation notion of ‘Ek Onkar’, there is only but one God.
A Sikh will live his daily life by the principles taught and demonstrated by the Ten Gurus which are found in the Shabad (the word) Guru, Guru Granth Sahib Ji. And the individual works of our Tenth Guru and the other scholarly Sikhs of the time of the Ten Gurus. The Gurdwara will preserve the traditions and disciplines set by Ten Guru’s and which are upheld adhered by the Damdami Taksal (Spiritual Sikh School started by the Tenth Guru).
The word Sikh is a Panjabi word which means ‘Learner’. The Sikh faith teaches us to earn our living honestly and through hard work (Dharam de Kirat). Meditate and thank the Lord (Naam Simran), undertake helpful community service by sharing what you have to create a vibrant community spirit (vande ke shakna). It also teaches us to create a society where all men and women are equal. It denounces the notion of caste, colour or creed. From this we are able to respect one another and create a sense of universal brotherhood and respect for one another.

NAGAR KIRTAN 10th August 2014
Following the success of the Nagar Kirtan on 3rd November 2013 we have uploaded some images from the beginning of the parade please click on the Media tab to view the images.
We have now successfully hosted our second Nagar Kirtan which was on 10th August 2014 11am-1.30pm
The Nagar Kirtan celebrates the birth and the life of the sixth Guru, Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji, as well as remembering the Sikhs who were killed and who gave their lives in fighting for our British Army in World War I and II.
Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji gave us the foundation for the Sikhs to live their lives as saint soldiers and it was this character of being a saint soldier that allowed the Sikhs to be fearless and brave soldiers and lay down their lives in both of the World Wars.
We have been fortunate enough to appear in the Evening Chronicle where the link is below:
If anyone had taken any photos from the day who would like us to upload to the site please get in touch and we will upload the images after verifying them.
Images and videos will be available shortly in the Media Section of the web site.
