Church History

From 1817 to 1872 they occupied a church on Ashton Road and in 1872 moved to a new building on Hyde Road. The church is no longer called 'Trinity', it is now known just as 'Denton Methodist Church'.

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.

Church Records

Whilst every effort has been made to record exact details of record office and library holdings you are recommended to check with them before visiting to ensure that they do hold the records and years you wish to examine. Similarly check with transcript publishers to ensure they cover the records and years you require before making a purchase.

Original registers
Some records are still held at the church or in the Hyde and Denton Methodist Circuit records which are aminly kept at Haughton Green Methodist Church on Two Trees lane in Denton (the circuit superintendent must be contacted in order to have access to those records), although many have now been transferred to the Manchester Central Library Archives Unit. Other general information about the Methodist Church is also available at the John Rylands library in Manchester where the archives of The Methodist Church are held.
