The Allen, formally Allen Memorial Methodist Church, was bought by Life Vineyard Church in 2019. Many of our church family live in the area and it’s been wonderful to connect with the local community and hear of the weddings, christenings, and other family occasions that have taken place in this historic building. Since LVC took over the management of the building, it has undergone some major transformations. The main church space now has a leveled floor and the pews have been re-housed. This has left a really open and flexible space for lots of kinds of events. The main hall at the back of the building has received some TLC too. We’d love to show you around!
Our hope and dream for this space is, that it will once again become a hub of the community through a variety of activities. We want to facilitate the growth of community as well as local businesses so the whole of Wallsend can continue to thrive!
