Meltham Methodist Church

The first record of Methodists meeting together for worship in Meltham is in 1795 a cottage in the neighbourhood of Bower Hill occupied by James Mellor was used for worship. In 1819 the first Chapel was built and was known as the Assembly Rooms and is still standing today next to the present Church. By 1846 three services each Sunday were planned and Meltham now provided 6 of the 22 preachers on the circuit plan. A new Chapel was built to seat 720 and was opened in February 1886. By the end of 1975 the site was cleared to make room for the present Church.

The picture you see is of the present day Methodist church built 33 years ago. More information on the history of Methodist in Meltham can be found in the Church.

Following the sale of the Assembly Rooms (now flats) there was an acute shortage of space for Sunday School and group activities.

At that time it was therefore decided to build an annexe onto the existing building to provide space for Sunday School and out reach, This was called BOBO.building out building on

The premises are now used extensively, by many different community folk crossing the doors for many different reasons, thus the church is building out a relationship with the community which was never explored before.

The church also has prayer meetings, and a house group. A warm welcome awaits you if you decide to come along, to some or any of the activities.
