Date: 1897-1981
History: The origins of this Church lie in the first Primitive Methodist society in Newcastle, founded in 1822. The society briefly worshipped in the Butchers' Hall until 1824, when they moved to a former Presbyterian Chapel in Sallyport. Shortly afterwards they moved again to a chapel in Silver Street, previously occupied by an Independent congregation. The society remained there until 1838 when a new chapel was opened in Nelson Street. In 1897 the congregation moved to new premises in Northumberland Road, known as the Primitive Central Church. The Church closed in June 1978. It was part of Newcastle upon Tyne First Primitive Methodist circuit. In 1934, following Methodist Union, it became part of Sandyford and Central Methodist Circuit. In 1965 the Central and Sandford Circuit merged with Brunswick Methodist Circuit and the church became part of the resulting Brunswick Central Methodist Circuit.
