Jesmond Presbyterian Church in the Great War

The Great War comes to Jesmond                                                 

In summer 1914 south Jesmond was swept up by the horror that was to be known as the Great War. This was deemed to be the worst ever, until it was succeeded by a worse war in 1939, and so it is now often called the First World War. The Presbyterian Church in this suburb on the north fringe of Newcastle upon Tyne was to be at the centre of the action because of its links to the 4th Battalion Tyneside Scottish, the nearby First Northern General Hospital, where injured servicemen were repatriated, and by its own members, 106 of whom served and 26 were not to return. Those who did not serve directly were indirectly involved through nursing, the provision of ‘comforts’ for the troops, by visiting the injured and by providing support and entertainment for those billeted in the church hall. This is the story of these people or, at least, the best effort that we can make to tell those living a century later what happened. I hope that you find it informative, and please remember that we are always seeking new information, contacts and corrections. I can be contacted at robert.shiel@ncl.ac.uk

Architect Vincent Stienlet, Rev. Ruth Crofton (Chair of the Development Committee) and Dr Alison Shiel (Church Secretary) will attend the awards ceremony in London on November 3rd, at which the Duke of Gloucester will present awards. This is a great honour for Vincente, Project Manager Graham Hatt, all involved in the project and the whole church community, and it matches the pleasure we experience in seeing how people enjoy using the refurbished buildings.

Heritage Lottery grant to restore the colour of the Tyneside Scottish (4th Battalion)

Success!

The church is custodian of the Colour of the Tyneside Scottish (4th Battalion), whose officers and men suffered greatly during the Battle of the Somme. A number of church families lost their sons in the conflict. The Colour is at present awaiting conservation, before being returned to the church. We are delighted to tell you that we have been awarded a grant of £9000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund, for restoration of the Colour, and to fund a related programme of events over the next two years.

Please help us with this wonderful project, more details about how to get involved or to make a donation are available here

More information about the 4th can be found here and the details of those who made the ultimate sacrifice can be found here
