Church of St Paul, Elswick


Now the Life Transformation Church, the former Church of St Paul is located on Havelock Place in Elswick. It was originally built as a parish church, consecrated in 1859, designed by Benjamin Green[1,2] (another source states John Dobson[3]). The church closed in 2006, and lay vacant and vandalised, until 2009, when it was taken over by the Life Transformation Ministry. Urgent repairs were carried out with funding, through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England Repair Grants for Places of Worship scheme, were completed in 2014. A second phase of urgent repairs that are due to be completed in 2017.[4
