Photo of the church


Durham Road Baptist Church’s ministry is mainly concentrated in the centre of Gateshead. The church building is situated on the corner of Gladstone Terrace, next to The Swallow Hotel.

During the summer we are holding our morning service in the original church. Please use the Gladstone Terrace entrance for the morning service at 11.00am, and the side entrance on the Durham Road slip road for the evening service at 6.30pm.

By bus

The church is serviced by many main bus routes into the centre of Gateshead. The stop directly outside the building is the ‘Durham Road slip road’, next to the Swallow Hotel. If you are travelling from further away, the best option is to use the main Gateshead Interchange stop and follow the directions for ‘By Metro’ from there.

By car

Parking is available in the surrounding streets, especially Granville Street. The postcode for the Church is NE8 4EJ for those with sat-nav systems.

By Metro

The nearest metro station to the church is the main Gateshead stop. Exit the Gateshead Interchange onto “High West Street” and walk away from the shopping area – it’s about 400m to the church. Landmarks that you pass on the way should be the police station on the left and the Swallow Hotel on the right.
