Church History

It was founded in 1870. The former church, on a nearby site, was built by the Wesleyan Methodists in 1870. The present building of 1909-10 was originally intended to seat 280 people. The building is now shared with the Church of England.

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.
