Heritage Lottery Fund Grant Success for the Oldest Methodist Building in the World - and it's in Bristol

New Room/HLF Press Release - February 2015

 

Step back in time
 
The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world (originally built in 1739) and the cradle of the early Methodist movement.
It was built and used by John Wesley and the early Methodists as a meeting and preaching place and the centre for helping and educating the needy members of the community.

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.

General information

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.

There is also a regular series of lunchtime concerts during the course of the year; held on Fridays at 1.20pm, immediately after the service. Please check for details of upcoming concerts by visiting the ’Events’ section of this website.
