New Superintendent Minister

Rev. Ann Varker

New Superintendent Minister

In September 2020 we were pleased to welcome our new Superintendent minister, the Revd Ann Varker, along with her husband Julian.

Ann has been a Methodist minister for 22 years, having previously served in appointments in Somerset, Buckinghamshire and, most recently, her home county of Devon. Having candidated for ministry in Kendal she is excited to be returning to the North of England although the Tyneside area is new to her.

Whitehall Road Methodist Church (Gateshead)


Whitehall Road Methodist Church is located in the middle of the Bensham area of Gateshead, close to the town centre. Opened in 1896, we remain a worshipping community where people of all ages feel glad to celebrate God’s goodness together and discover the Good News that Jesus came to bring.

We seek to give God praise and glory, whilst providing an atmosphere of reverence and friendliness, and a place where the wider community can feel accepted as they are, and find welcome, hope and friendship.
