The church is very much at the heart of this week’s picture spread, with bell ringers and choristers taking centre stage.
From the 1970s and 80s, the photos capture some of the highlights in the calendar year of St Hilda’s Church, in South Shields.
Do you feature in any of the pictures included or do you recognise any of those people singing, bell-ringing or taking a glimpse of the town’s industrial past.
The choristers were at the church in May, 1984, having travelled from all over Tyneside, Wearside and Teesside, to take part in a special even-song service.
They were conducted by Richard Lloyd, organist and master of the choristers at Durham Cathedral.
