ST MARY'S RC CATHEDRAL CHURCH, NEWCASTLE

St Mary's RC Cathedral Newcastle: The exterior architecture of the church designed by Pugin in 1844, inspired by his 'Gothic Revival' approach. The spire is 222 ft high! and built later in 1860-1873 by Hansom.

ALL SAINTS ex C of E CHURCH, NEWCASTLE

All Saints Church viewed from looking up from the quayside.

All Saints Church was built from 1786 to 1796, designed by the architect David Stephenson. The poet Sir John Betjeman regarded it as one of the finest Georgian churches in England. A church has stood on this site since the 12th century, but the original medieval All hallows Church was demolished and replaced by the present building.

All Saints Church of England, Newcastle: The church was rebuilt on the site of a demolished medieval church in 1786-1786 by David Stephenson. So many medieval churches have been lost in this way, BUT,  All Saints is a handsome Georgian building whose spire is prominent from across the River Tyne in Gateshead.

All Saints Church, Newcastle: However, it does not seem in a good state of repair (2013) but I would love to explore the interior of the church - when is it open? The spire sits on top of a tower and both are quite richly decorated in their stonework. The church is set in a graveyard, dating back to medieval times?

 

All Saints Church, Newcastle: The entrance with its grand portico of four Greek Doric columns supporting a fine pediment.

All Saints church was deconsecrated in 1961, and converted to offices/auditorium in 1983-84 as the Town Teacher initiative. All Saints was then used by the Royal Northern Sinfonia before their move to The Sage, Gateshead in 2004. For a time All Saints was used by the Church of Saint Willibrord with All Saints, a member of The Old Catholic Church Anglican Diocese. All Saints Church has also hosted musical events, but, after flood damage caused by blocked roof drains over the 2009/2010 and 2010/2011 winters, the building was left in a state of semi-disrepair. In 2015 it was placed on Historic England's Heritage at Risk register. In 2019, the local congregation of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in England and Wales signed a 150-year lease for All Saints and after a comprehensive restoration project, worship services as All Saints Presbyterian Church began in October, 2019.
