Church History

It opened on 6 February 1884 and closed in 2008 joining with Trinity and moving to Dunkirk St. As of November 2011 it is being converted to residential use.

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.
