South Shields, Westoe Lane, Catholic Apostolic Church
Religious Ritual and Funerary
Catholic Apostolic Church
A chapel belonging to this interesting Victorian charismatic group survives at the corner of Westoe Lane (now Road) and Wharton Street; it was last used in the 1950s. It seated 180 people. The present building on the site looks of some age, but has been much altered and does not show any obvious ecclesiastical features. Brick with stone quoins, slate roof. In 2018 the building is occupied by Empire Designer Wear and Karens Hair Studio on the ground floor and Euphorx Beauty & Holistic Clinic on the first floor.
