St. John's Church, Newcastle-On-Tyne, Parish

Image ID:

In an endeavour to take the church to the people, a church service, complete with choir, is held in one of Newcastle-On-Tyne's main streets, Tyne and Wear. Immediately after evening service at St. John's Church, the vicar and congregation walks through the streets to hold a service somewhere in the Parish. The idea was originated because war workers, whose duties prevented them attending ordinary services through the day, could take part. Here is the scene, with passers by joining in. September 1944 P011616
