Re: Hebburn Churches & Clergy…
I knew the Charles Street chapel as a Primitive Methodist one, before it closed and I transferred to the Glen Street Wesleyan Methodist Church. I was born in 1941 and my grandfather, John Tungate, was Charles Street Sunday School Superintendent. I can't remember when it closed, but accept your date of 1952 as probably being correct. At Glen Street Sunday School the only names I can remember are John White, of Mill Farm, being Superintendent and I was there when John Wall became the church Minister. Sunday School Anniversaries were special events when I had to learn my "piece" to recite at the special service. The only one I recall was a poem "When I'm a Man."
Harvest Festivals and Good Friday marches were other days when the Sunday School got involved. In the rationing years after the war, an outstanding memory of Easter was being given an orange!
