You may have heard that The Salvation Army City Temple on Westgate Rd has finally been sold. The buyer is a Chinese property developer. The SA is hoping to find a suitable building to take over and redevelop, or a plot of land to build on. Anyone know of any suitable ideas? Something to hold 150 people in congregation/conference seating and rooms for community work with ancillary rooms and parking.

Welcome to the forum Antony and thanks for the information on the City Temple.

The City Temple has been discussed on the forum before @

We have a separate thread that may interest you on the matter of finding other premises - see http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1093493

One area that I photographed recently was in Hanover Square/Clavering Place, two sites actually. One was to the southern side of the former Friar House ( A now RoomZZZ Aparthotel) and the other was the site of the former Hanover Square Chapel.(B)

These are the photographs taken 4th September 2013 and also a satellite view from Google Earth:

Of course there are many buildings lying empty in the City Centre - one which springs to mind but perhaps isn't one that would suit your purposes in the Keelman's Hospital.(wishful thinking)

Our Lady Of Annunciation Rc Church Millway Gateshead NE9 5PQ


These pictures taken by myself 15/10/13 approx 1045 to show the building, but first a screen print of Google Map image















This text from Wikipedia

Built in 1950, this modern, Roman Catholic church is located at Millway, and is the only place of worship in the suburb.

It was also a social hub, hosting regular events such as Christmas fayres.[

In 2009 however, parish priest David Taylor was arrested in connection with a number of indecent assaults on young boys in his care and was suspended from his joint parish of St Peter's, Low Fell and the Annunciation. Taylor admitted five charges at Durham Crown Court in 2009 and was given a prison sentence.

On 20 April 2012, a final mass was held by the Bishop of Hexham and Newcastle and the church was closed.

As of 2012 the building remains standing, although property company GVA are inviting tenders for the church and adjoining land
.

But now we know its fate

Relics of St Anthony of Padua bring joy to hundreds of Catholics

Relics of St Anthony of Padua are to be brought to St Anthony's Roman Catholic church in Walker as part of a visit to Ireland and Britain next month. The relics, from the saint's Basilica in Padua, will be at St Anthony of Padua RC Church, Welbeck Road, on Monday 28 October.

Relics of St Anthony of Padua bring joy to hundreds of Catholics
By Kate Proctor - 29th October 2013



More than four decades of hard work in an inner city parish were celebrated yesterday by a Catholic priest who secured the showing of 750-year-old relics.

Father Michael Conaty said bringing the remains of St Anthony of Padua to the church which bears the saint’s name was a highlight of his service to the city.

“We are named after St Anthony of Padua so it’s very special to have his relics come here,” said Father Conaty, who leads the congregation of St Anthony’s in Walker.

“Never in 40 years have I had anything like this - it’s the very first time.

“I asked for them to come here on their tour as St Anthony of Padua means a lot to people in the area.

“He died age 36 and performed many miracles in his lifetime.”

Queues of Catholics weaved their way around the church as coaches arrived with visitors from across the North of England.

Big screens were also set up in the John Boste Community Centre so last night’s mass could be viewed by the expected surge in numbers.

Father Conaty, said: “We had coaches from Whitby, Leeds, Scotland and Carlisle bringing people across. We expected about 2,000 people.

“St Anthony was an extremely spiritual man and there’s a great love for him throughout the world.”

Crowds filed past the two relics on display and were given time to say a prayer as well as write a message on a piece of paper to be placed inside his tomb in Italy.

One relic presented inside a glass case was a section of cheek and another was a piece of skin tissue taken from St Anthony’s tomb in 1263.

It is said that when St Bonaventure opened his tomb thirty years after his death his tongue was found still ‘soft and wet’, and it is on display behind the alter at St Anthony’s Basillica in Padua.

Bewick Rd synagogue and other educational/religious buildings, Gateshead

You will be hard pressed to find much information on the "Bensham" Jewish community as they all refer to themselves as Gateshead Jews. Until the "new" synagogue was built on Bewick Road in 1938 its predecessors had all been in the Teams area. Redheugh Bridge Road, Prest Street, Corbitt Street and I think there was another one but I have forgotten it for the moment. The 1911 census shows most of the Jews living in the Teams close to the various synagogues and they obviously didn't migrate to Bensham until the Bewick Road synagogue was built. As I have mentioned elsewhere "They Docked at Newcastle and Wound up in Gateshead" by Millie Donbrow is as good a place as any to start find out about the Jews in Gateshead. I just regret I haven't got a copy.
Follow up to the above post from Alf Stone some pictures of the synagogue building on Bewick Rd, taken by myself 15/05/12

But first a screen print of Google Map image showing the building, located on Bewick Rd, at junction with Rectory Rd, also showing showing some of the Jewish Community education buildings including Gateshead Talmudical College, Windermere Street.

The synagogue has in recent years been involved with a "land swap" with Gateshead Council resulting in land for a future extension being made available set against improvements made to the adjacent park area

Penny-a-brick church in Wallsend could be country’s best

Penny-a-brick church in Wallsend could be country’s best
By Tony Henderson - 31st October 2013


The Church of Our Lady and St Columba in Wallsend, which has been shortlisted for a national award

A Tyneside church has been short listed in the search for the best modern places of worship in the country.

Our Lady and St Colomba’s RC Church in Carville Road in Wallsend was built in 1957.

Described by the church’s priest, Father Anthony Donaghue, as being of “cathedral-like” proportions, it was built partly from a “penny a brick” fund-raising campaign.

People could “buy” a brick for a penny and Fr Donaghue said: “It was a great community effort at a time when people didn’t have much money.”

The building is on a short list of 24 buildings to be named the Best Modern Church since 1953.

The competition, for architectural and atmospheric excellence, is being run by the National Churches Trust, the Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association and the 20th Century Society to find the Top 10 modern churches in the UK.

Over 200 churches were nominated for the competition by members of the public and various organisations.

The winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held at Lambeth Palace on November 7.

Fr Donaghue said: “The church was built near the shipyards and, with its huge tower, has been likened to an ocean-going liner. It is a beautiful architectural building and is very atmospheric inside.

“I am not surprised that it has made the short list and the congregation is very pleased.”

Fr Donaghue said that one of the features of the church was its mix of brick textures laid horizontally and vertically.

“The effect is brilliant,” he said.

There are six coloured glass windows 15ft tall on each side of the church.

“The light coming through the windows is incredible and in the mornings it radiates through the church,” he said.

The church’s interior also features two huge mosaics of Our Lady and St Colomba.

Fr Donaghue said: “The building is of cathedral proportions and is the length of a cricket pitch from the front to the back pew.”

The church can accommodate more than 550 people. The parish was formed in 1885 and the current church replaced what as known as the “tin church” because it had a tin roof.

The architect for the Wallsend church was Vincente Stienlet.

Newcastle-based Pascal J Stienlet & Son was founded in 1904.

From Pascal Stienlet’s listed St Edward’s Catholic Church in Whitley Bay to his son Vincente’s Our Lady & St Columbia in Wallsend to grandson’s (also Vincente) St Augustine’s Church in Felling, three generations have designed ecclesiastical buildings around the country.

Wallsend's Striking Penny-A-Brick Church In Line For National Design Award

From Tyne & Wear Sky News @ http://tyneandwear.sky.com/news/art...ing-penny-a-brick-church-in-line-for-national

Wallsend's Striking Penny-A-Brick Church In Line For National Design Award
By Jenny Wotherspoon - 4th November 2013

A Wallsend Church paid for by a penny-a-brick community scheme is among the top 24 in the country to be shortlisted for a new UK architecture award.

The Our Lady and St Columba Roman Catholic Church on Carville Road is in the running for the Best Modern Churches Awards after being selected from a long list of 200 buildings.

Built in 1957, it was paid for partly by a fundraising scheme which saw members of the community each pay a penny for a brick to contribute to the build.

Designed by architect Vincente Stienlet of Newcastle-based Pascal J Stienlet & Son, the Wallsend church features geometric blue and yellow stained glass windows, and thousands of different-shaped bricks.

The church's preist, Father Anthony Donaghue, said: "There are some wonderful features to this cathedral-like church. The bricks, in my experience, are unusual in that there are so many of them.

"They're quite small and arranged in horizontal and vertical lines, they're quite beautiful and do really add something to the building.

"Then above the the bricks are these five stunning glass windows in shades of blue and yellow that flood the room with light, which hits the furniture and the pews.

"I'm thrilled and I know the people who use the church are thrilled that it has been shortlisted for the award, and we're all hoping we will get a good result."

The architecture competition, run by the National Churches Trust, the Ecclesiastical Architects and Surveyors Association and the 20th Century Society, will choose the top ten modern churches in the UK.

Held to mark the 60th anniversary of the National Churches Trust, it will also see a National Churches Trust Diamond Jubilee Architecture prize presented to the best three churches built in the past 60 years.

Since 1953 the trust has provided over £85m of loans anf grants to over 12,000 churches to pay for modernisation and repair work.

Only churches which opened after January 1, 1953 will be considered for the awards, which will be presented by Archbishop of Canterbury and former Bishop of Durham Justin Welby.

The presentation will take place at a ceremony at Lambeth Palace on November 7, 2013.

Jewish Community in Gateshead & Bewick Rd synagogue and other educational/religious buildings, Gateshead

Following up on the following posts

Questions thread posts 4381 - 4382

This Religious Buildings thread post 488

and the 19/11/13 discussion in the HISTORY and OLD PHOTOS of the North East (Areas Outside the Newcastle City Boundary) tread, posts 666 - 670
and the comments about there been little on the web concerning the Jewish Community living in Gateshead thought it may be opportune to include the following

This text from the Gateshead Council website article on pages 11 - 12 of http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/DocumentLibrary/Building/regeneration/Character-appraisal.pdf on subject of Jewish Community in Gateshead

History of the Orthodox Jewish Community

The origins of the Jewish community in Gateshead (known by its members as Kehilla – Hebrew for ‘community’) began when a number of Jews fled from persecution in Eastern Europe, to settle in Newcastle during the 1870s. One man, Zechariah Bernstone, became so unhappy with what he believed were lax religious standards within that community that he moved to Gateshead in 1881, to find a home and develop a strictly orthodox settlement. Some like-minded individuals joined him, and soon the nucleus of today’s community was born.

Initially based around Derwentwater Road, the community moved gradually towards the Bewick Road area.

However, despite being distinct from the Jewish population in Britain, in terms of its level of orthodoxy, the catalyst for gaining worldwide renown was Rabbi Dovid Dryan, who came to Gateshead in 1923. He was behind the founding of the Yeshiva, or Talmudical College, which opened with 3 pupils in 1929, at 179 Bewick Road, and quickly grew both in size and reputation.

Inevitably, as a result of the rise of fascism in Europe and persecution by the Nazis, the Gateshead community welcomed many Jewish refugees, and the reputation of the Talmudical College drew many young students from yeshivas across Europe.

To cater for its growth, the College expanded into neighbouring properties at 177 Bewick Road and on Rectory Road, and in 1961 moved into a purpose-built building on Windermere Street West, with a new dormitory block, built in place of the demolished original buildings on Bewick Road and Rectory Road, opening in 1963. Rabbi Dryan also brought about the Institute of Higher Rabbinical Studies, to provide an opportunity for further study to graduates of the Yeshiva, and this opened in 1941, headed by one of the most influential twentieth century Jewish thinkers, Rabbi E E Dessler. It was, at the time, the first such institution outside of Eastern Europe.

There are now four institutions for advanced rabbinical studies, where post-graduate research in Jewish studies is undertaken. Later, in 1944, the Jewish Teachers Training College (Bewick Road) and Gateshead Jewish Boarding School (Alexandra Road) were founded, the latter originally intended for refugees, though soon becoming the community’s secondary school for boys. The Jewish Teachers Training College, commonly known as Gateshead Sem., caters for over 300 female students, who come from all over the world to study there.

Gateshead has, in effect, become a university town, renowned in the worldwide Jewish community on the level of Oxford and Cambridge, and providing tuition to approximately 1500 students over a number of different educational institutions. Indeed, the majority of the community are directly or indirectly involved in these educational establishments, as teachers, students or in a support role, and a complete educational and social infrastructure has developed as a result.

The community remains strictly orthodox, as a natural consequence. There remains only one synagogue in Gateshead, to which the whole Jewish community belongs, and its Rabbi (known as ‘the Rov’) is respected as the community’s ultimate religious authority. This creates a unity not found elsewhere, and its structure, commitment to observance and its academic standards echo the large pre-war Jewish communities of Eastern Europe.

The Gateshead Kehilla is so well-respected worldwide, in fact, that it is sometimes referred to as the Jerusalem of Europe, and it is a highly major part of the development history of Coatsworth Conservation Area

St Augustine's Catholic Church, Wealcroft, Leam Lane, Felling

Comment from post #489:-

The architect for the Wallsend church was Vincente Stienlet.

Newcastle-based Pascal J Stienlet & Son was founded in 1904.

From Pascal Stienlet’s listed St Edward’s Catholic Church in Whitley Bay to his son Vincente’s Our Lady & St Columbia in Wallsend to grandson’s (also Vincente) St Augustine’s Church in Felling, three generations have designed ecclesiastical buildings around the country.

Unable to find a date for its construction but from personal knowledge would think early 1960's at latest

Taken on my same visit to Leam Lane when pictures of St Augustine's Catholic Church were taken these photographs show the smaller, adjacent (within 200m) The Leam Methodist Church, Meresyde, Leam Lane, Felling - another church built would think late 1950's or very early 1960's (attended a cousin's wedding there, think 1962) and used to be in the shadow of the now demolished Felling /Leam Lane Swimming Pool off Fewster Square

Swallow (formerly Five Bridges) Hotel, High West St, Gateshead

The Bewick Road side is very '70's' as it is. The hotel was built in that time frame and still looks it. The hotel appears to be still in use so not sure where the 'former Swallow Hotel' comes from. I only passed that way on Friday and had a Christmas tree in the lobby and was still active.
I think you slightly misread my post Steve, text which read:-

"about the Swallow (formerly Five Bridges) Hotel"

The Five Bridges Hotel and the adjoining Ten Bowling Centre (now Council owned "Carpet bowling centre") was built in early/mid 1960's by Greensitt & Barratt (before Laurie and partner - think called Cliff split the company) on the site of what used to be the Presbyterian Church (pictures in short supply)

Thanks for that Ken, I was not aware of that. I was under the impression it was a 70,s construction. There was a church on the opposite side of the road where the garage is now I believe.
There were 3 churches in what was known as the Holy Corner, only the Baptist Church still remaining. The Presbyterian church was on the site where the Swallow now stands, and the site of the United Methodist Free Church is now a slip road next to the Gateshead Highway.

Does anyone have any information on when the Swallow will be closing?
