St John the Baptist Church Newington - 203 St Georges Rd - Hull - HU3 3SP
The Church of St John the Baptist is the parish church of Newington and was built in 1876 by Smith and Brodrick. Designed in the Early English style, it is built of red brick with stone dressings externally and rendered brick internally.
These days it is better known as the Fishermen's Church as it has strong links with all sections of the Hessle Road community, a link which continues with the transformation of a side chapel into a modern youth community facility.
The fishing heritage is also reflected in the annual Sea Sunday Service as well as physical reminders such as the finely illustrated Memorial Book of Lost Fishermen and the bell and flashlight from the lost trawler Gaul.
Together with some of the earlier features such as the fine stained glassed windows, the third largest organ in Hull and the striking green pews, this makes a visit to this church highly recommended.
New brochures will be available to guide visitors around the beautiful interior of St Johns.
