St. Gabriel's Church, Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne Awarded a Grant of £5,000

St. Gabriel's church was built on land given by Lord Armstrong at the time when Heaton was expanding to meet the needs of local industry. It is constructed in snecked sandstone with Westmoreland slate. It is a well-known building which can be seen from all four corners of the parish.

From the beginning St. Gabriel’s was a very active church, hosting and running many religious and community activities including a boys’ choir and one of the first Scout Troops in the area.

Regular church services take place on Sundays and throughout the week. Choral music, led by Choir Director Tim Burke, greatly enhances the Parish Eucharist. There is a thriving Junior Church.

St. Gabriel's was recently awarded £5,000 from Northumbria Historic Churches Trust to help with the improvement to their toilet facilities. The works were completed in May 2023.

In respect of comments from the parish committee, the following was received:

"St. Gabriel’s is a church used a great deal by the community and we like to be a welcoming church to all. The grant given to St. Gabriel's from Northumbria Historic Churches Trust has enabled us to refurbish our church toilets to a standard that you would expect in the twenty-first century as well as providing much needed additional storage space. We are very grateful indeed".
