Church History

It was founded before 1811. In the late 18th Century the Methodists held their services in a room at the rear of "Stoops Hall" in the High Street. Their first chapel was completed in 1814, a small, plain building of typical Non-conformist style; its replacement, erected in 1879, now occupies the same site at what is called "Park Hill".

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.
