Oldest Methodist building in the world takes first step towards new future
The chapel itself is on the ground floor (where there is also a shop) and is accessible from either the Broadmead or Horsefair courtyards. Upstairs, are the Preachers’ Rooms where the MLA accredited museum is located. This contains a unique collection of papers and artifacts and tells the story of John and Charles Wesley and their life and work in Bristol.
There is a short service of Holy Communion in the chapel at 1pm on Fridays throughout the year to which all are welcome. There is also a prayer book in the chapel for visitors to write in during the week.
The New Room has hosted numerous events to mark significant anniversaries, including, most recently, the 300th Anniversary of the birth of Charles Wesley and the 200th Anniversary of the Bill to Abolish the Slave Trade in 2007.
