Church History

The first chapel in Chatburn was opened on Downham Road on Good Friday, 25th Mar 1864. This eventually became outgrown and was sold to John Holgate and converted into two cottages, 19 and 20 Downham Road. A new chapel was built just off Downham Road, this being opened on Thurs 13th December 1883.

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.
