    Default Primitive Methodists church


    This church was built in 1890, but the Primitive Methodists began preaching , in the summer of 1837. A Society was formed, which met in the home of James Maden. When he moved away, the infant church rented a house, using one room for preaching, and the other three rooms for the Sunday School, which opened on 7 April 1839.

    Before this church, known as The Hephzibah Chapel.

    In 2009, they merged with Longsight Methodist Church to form a single Hollywood Methodist Church. Longsight Church was closed and converted to a community hall, and worship has continued. Pictures of the interior, and plans for its redevelopment can be seen on the church website

    The place has now been bought and will no doubt be torn apart by some grunt footok of a developer

    Visited with a non member Porky Pig

    Here's what it used to look like

    This looks truly lovely Tbolt! I've never seen them little pew radiators before, how strange, love 'em! Cool cracked varnish on that door too and beautiful light caught in there! Your mate deserves a beer for dragging that cross miles, probably best give him some wine.
