Church of St. Joseph, Benwell


St Joesph's Church in Benwell is located at the junction of Armstrong Road and South Benwell Road. The neo-Byzantine style building was designed by Stienlet & Maxwell and opened in October 1931. It was consecrated as a Roman Catholic church in March 22nd 1938. The church is thought to have replaced an earlier corrugated iron building of 1903.[1] St Joseph's remained in use by the Roman Catholic Church until its closure in February 2013. On 22nd November 2013, The Jesmond Trust purchased the building from the Roman Catholic Diocese of Hexham and Newcastle. From September 2014 to September 2015 the building was extensively refurbished, after which it reopened as an Anglican gospel church.[2]
