Church of St John the Evangelist, Birtley


St John's in the parish church in Birtley. The church was consecrated by the Bishop of Durham on 9th August 1849. Shortly afterwards on the 8th of January 1850 Birtly became a Parish in its own right, having previously been part of the Parish of Chester-le-Street. By 1880 the town population had grown rapidly to nearly 3,600 and it became necessary to extend the Church; 2 transepts were added to the sides of the nave giving the building it's present cruciform shape.[1] The church is a Grade II listed buiding.
