Lovely building but the offices below need to be upgraded and modernized. Other than that, a lovely place to visit. Parking is a pain.

This is one of Newcastle's most beautiful churches and certainly one of the nicest buildings in downtown Newcastle itself. We were lucky enough to be walking past when a service was concluding, and asked if we could have a quick look inside the building. The building has been well preserved - tall coloured led light windows, wooden pews inside, etc.... More

The Baptist Tabernacle in Newcastle overlooks the Civic Park. The building is a typical Tabernacle building. A nice building dominated by pillars across the front, it appears that the church is only open for Sunday services, which detracts from its value as an attraction.
