St. Mary's Heritage Group



St Mary’s Heritage Group, Gateshead is a constituted group of volunteers, all passionate about the history of St Mary’s and the surrounding area. The group was created to support the work already being carried out at the Heritage Centre.

We run a full programme of events throughout the year ranging from guided tours and heritage talks to coffee mornings and vintage teas. We can help with family history research by utilising St Mary’s archives and parish records, and we are continually researching the history of the building, the people associated with St Mary’s and those buried in the graveyard. 

For a nominal sum, currently £5 per year, you too can be a part of St Mary’s Heritage Group. We are always looking for members to help with events and research, and how ‘active’ a member you want to be is entirely up to you. Your support could be attending our talks, or helping with refreshments at an event. Perhaps you would like to help with family research or become a St Mary’s guide. Whatever time you can devote to the Group would be very welcome.

As a St Mary’s Heritage Group member, you will receive advance notification of events within St Mary’s as well as invitations to exclusive ‘members-only’ events and discounted prices for most of the heritage group events at St Mary’s.

More information about the group and our activities can be found at
