Administrative / biographical background:

Wesleyan Methodist services were first held in Cleadon Village in the 1780s by John Burdon in his farm cottage. However, the members hoped for a 'proper' church and in 1898 Whitburn Methodist Church appointed 13 trustees to supervise the provision of a new church in Cleadon. The foundation stone was laid at the Sunderland Road site on 3 May 1899 by Dr John Burdon, grandson of the above John Burdon and later in the year the church opened. It was part of the Sunderland St John Wesleyan Circuit (MC.Su2), later Sunderland North Circuit (MC.Su1)
