SEE US IN A NEW LIGHT
Monday Organ Meditations
Sadly, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to suspend our organ meditation series at Jesmond United Reformed Church until at least the end of January 2021. Please revisit this page for updates about when we can resume.
We are very keen that the Cathedral’s organ recitals remain an important part of the cultural life of the city and region, and so a temporary new home for these recitals has been kindly granted by Jesmond United Reformed Church.
Jesmond United Reformed Church is a little more than 5 minutes’ walk from Jesmond Metro Station. If you presently come into Newcastle by train, the metro line can be accessed at Central Station, you can board any train for ‘St James via The Coast’ or ‘The Airport’, and travel for 3 stops.
Refreshments will be available before and after the recitals. The organ at Jesmond URC was, like our organ, build by TC Lewis, and completed in 1890. Its only rebuild was by Henry Willis III in the 1950s, so this instrument remains one of quality, beauty, and distinction. We wish to thank in advance the secretary, elders, staff, and congregation of Jesmond URC for their generosity in enabling our series to continue and flourish. We do hope that you can join us.
