Christ Church (and hall attached), Shieldfield Green, Newcastle upon Tyne - Newcastle upon Tyne

Parish church of 1859-61, by AB Higham, constructed of squared sandstone with ashlar dressings and Welsh slate roofs. The roofs are coming to the end of their life and water ingress is damaging internal plaster work. Funding, through the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England Repair Grants for Places of Worship scheme, allowed a first phase of roof repairs to be completed in 2015. Discussions are underway about a second phase.
