This is one of the oldest church in Newcastle upon Tyne. The design was brilliant and well looked after by the Management of the church. I can categorically say, this is a treasure to this City.

I attended the Harvest Supper last night and really enjoyed the night. The church is beautiful and the welcome was sincere. Ellington Band were outstanding and the food and drink very welcome. A great community church and a hidden gem in the middle of town.
