Church History

The origins of Springfield Greenlands Methodist Church are actually in a Council House in Ardmore Road, just behind the existing Church on Bispham Road in circa 1954. Miss Edith Maud Howarth who was a devout Methodist found that there was no Church or Sunday School on the new estate which was growing ever bigger in the area. So she started up a Sunday School in her home for the children of the estate and surrounds. The attendances increased so much that the Sunday School moved into the assembly hall of the adjacent Arnold School for Girls. Over the years and following the migration of Miss Howarth to Ausralia, the existing Springfield Methodist Greenlands was built. This name was given to the new building by Miss Howarth who had formerly attended the original Springfield Methodist Church in Blackpool itself.
