Consecrated in 1899 as a chapel of ease in the parish of Newburn, the church stood for many years in rural isolation well away from the mining community of Westerhope it was built to serve, until recent years when it has been surrounded by new housing estates. [The Newcastle Diocesan Gazetteer (1982), page 78.]
