Newcastle City Temple

Serving the Community in Christ's Name

Newcastle City Temple Corps is a Salvation Army Church that aims to share the message of God’s love in Jesus Christ throughout the City of Newcastle Upon Tyne, to encourage believers of all ages to deepen their understanding of God, and to work for the wider community.

We currently meet for Sunday Worship in the church hall at Brunswick Methodist Church at 10am each Sunday morning - where a warm welcome is extended to all. Newcastle City Temple has a strong reputation for supporting Students who worship with us whilst at University and who are welcome to join in with activities arranged for our Youth Fellowship.  Mid way through our Sunday morning worship any children present are invited to join members of our Sunday School for their weekly class.  

Regular updates on our current activities can also be found via the 'Newcastle City Temple Salvation Army Church' Facebook Page.

Could you help us make Christmas special for those who may have little or nothing under the tree on Christmas morning?
Why not choose a gift from our 'BE A STAR!' Christmas Gift Appeal 2021 AMAZON GIFT LIST and have it delivered directly to us. Or bring a gift along to our special Toy Service to be held at Brunswick Methodist Church on Sunday 5th December at 10am. We believe every child deserves to receive only new age appropriate toys and gifts at Christmastime, therefore we would kindly ask that only new unwrapped gifts are donated.

Newcastle City Temple Building Fund


Where it all started

Revival swept through Newcastle in early 1879 after six young 'Hallelujah Lasses' marched across the swing bridge from Gateshead and began preaching to the crowds that thronged Sandhill. Sunday Meetings were held initially in a packed Tyne Theatre and within just 6 weeks The Salvation Army in Newcastle had grown at a spectacular rate - attracting 1000 converts.

The new corps held a number of tenancies including an old brewery and the New Jerusalem Temple on Percy Street - but in 1889 the foundation stones for a new 'Salvation Cathedral' were laid between Bath Lane and Westgate Road and that's where Newcastle City Temple Corps remained, faithfully working and witnessing for the next 119 years.

Despite having been modernised in 1984, spiralling maintenance costs, including costs associated with keeping the building in line with current legislation, meant that in 2008, Newcastle City Temple was forced to vacate these premises.

From 2008

Since 2008 the City Temple has been based at Brunswick Methodist Church, and it was always hoped that this would only be temporary arrangement until able to move to a new purpose-built hall.


After 13 years that hope is finally being realised - with work due to commence on the building of a new Worship and Community Centre. This new hall will be built on the site of the former Cowgate Methodist Church, Stamfordham Road, Newcastle upon Tyne. It is hoped that the work will be completed by next Summer (August 2022).

2022 and beyond....

Over the course of its 142 year history to date, The Salvation Army in Newcastle upon Tyne, has always had at its heart the salvation of the people and the welfare of the community. We are very excited about the wonderful opportunities which this new hall will provide, not least because we firmly believe that it will enable us to serve the needs of those within the local community and wider City of Newcastle even more effectively.

We need your help

AND SO... We'd like to invite you to partner with us as we prepare to commence a new and exciting chapter of Newcastle City Temple's work and witness. Would you therefore consider 'Buying a Brick' and help us in the 'Building of the Temple'? Your support really is appreciated. Thank you.
