Life Transformation Church (former Church of St Paul), Havelock Place, High Elswick - Newcastle upon Tyne

Former parish church of 1856-9 designed by John Dobson. Closed in 2006, the church lay vacant and subject to heritage crime. It was taken over by the Life Transformation Ministry in 2009. Funding through the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England Repair Grants for Places of Worship scheme enabled a first phase of urgent repairs to be completed in 2014. Further funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund Grants for Places of Worship scheme facilitated a second phase of urgent repairs, completed in 2017. Further works are required to secure the site's long-term use.
