See inside the Victorian Sunderland church that's up for auction
A former church, which has welcomed worshippers for more than 100 years, has gone on the market.
In November 2020 the fellowship of St Bede United Reformed Church was combined with Stockton Road United Reformed Church.
Now the St Bede building in Sorley Street, Chester Road, has been listed with Paul Airey estate agents for auction.
The listing reads: “Subject to obtaining necessary planning permission we feel the site would be suitable for residential development or utilised as workshop and storage.”
The property is to be sold via Hanover Auctions, where a buyer’s premium of £5,000 plus vat is payable.
The Victorian church dates back to 1890 when it was built as Sorley Street Congregational Church by architect John Eltringham.
It has Gothic features typical of the period, while the interior features a former school room as well as many original features including an oak pulpit.
