In 1958 the then Rector of Jarrow, the Revd. George Beckwith, came up with the idea that in ST Paul's Church each year a lecture should be given on some aspect of the history and significance of Jarrow. The primary purpose of the series of lectures is to spread a knowledge of Jarrow and it's significance. The second pupose is to help provide funds for the fabric and restoration of St Paul's Church, through the sale of the lectures.
Each year since 1958 there has been a Jarrow Lecture given by an eminent academic. These can be purchased within the church
