Durham / Heworth Lane near Gateshead-Births

Hi, apologies if I've already posted this request for info on this site.

Looking for any information on birth/baptism records for Heworth Lane, Gateshead.   My relatives Bartholomew (GGF) and James Cunningham are on the 1861 census as living and being born in Heworth Lane, Durham.  I cannot find either of them on the civil registration.  Can anyone help?  Details are:

Peter Cunningham (transcribed Conningham) 35 Head Chemical Worker born Ireland
Rosa 30 born Ireland
Mary daur 11 born Scotland
Bartholomew son 5 born Hewarth Lane, Durham
James son 8 months born Durham.

The parents married in Old Monkland, Lanarkshire and had Mary, but they don't seem to have registered her in Scotland or England by the look of it.

As the census moves on over the years when Batty moves to the Widnes area of Lancashire, his place of birth becomes a bit more unclear, Newcastle 'Staffordshire' not! and Felton 'Cumberland' not!

Is there anyone who knows the area well and could give me a clue on churches in the area around the time and where any baptism could have taken place?  Batty's son, born Bartholomew Dal(e)y in 1892 in Widnes was definitely RC.

Look forward to hearing from anyone who can give me specifics or general info.
