Church History

It was founded in 1829 and closed in 1937. It became the home of Mancunian Film later to become a BBC studio where Top of the Pops was first filmed in 1964.

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.
