Church History

It was founded in 1863. The Wesleyan Chapel at Oaken Clough closed about 1968 when the new Methodist church which replaced the Oldham Road Methodist and Oaken Clough opened in Vale Street. The opening ceremony was performed by Ernest Copeland in October 1968.

The Wesleyan Methodist church was formed in the 18th century from religous societies founded by John Wesley and his preachers. It suffered many secessions, but was the largest Nonconformist denomination in the 19th century. In 1932 the Wesleyan Methodists joined with the Primitive Methodists and the United Methodists to form the Methodist Church of Great Britain.
