A children's mission since 1885. This was the first public building to have outward opening doors following the Victoria Hall Disaster of 1883 when 183 children were crushed to death. Tyne and Wear Archives has the mission recorded as Presbyterian. It holds baptism records from 1907 to 1964 and communicants rolls from 1904 to 1966. The building is known as the Bethesda Chapel. The last use of the building was an amateur boxing club and community centre.
