AN INTRODUCTION TO WESLEY ROAD METHODIST CHURCH, TROWBRIDGE

The first Methodist Church in Trowbridge was opened in 1836 in Manvers Street. When this was too full, the vision for a Church in Newtown came to life and Wesley Road Church was built in 1872 for the cost of £1,641 2s. 10d.

In 1881 the school rooms were built and in 1898 a Day School began meeting here. Later this transferred to Newtown School.

In 1930 the Church was refurbished, and again in the early 1990’s, when the school room was extended and the church pews removed to make a flexible and pleasant worship area.

Today the church has 75 members, and many more people who are involved in its life in one way or another. This is reflected in the various activities run at or by the Church, both for children and adults.

The Aims of the Church are described in detail on our Church website and outline what we believe the purposes of God for the Church continue to be.

      PRAYER STATIONS      

10th – 17th   SEPTEMBER

During the Methodist Conference earlier this year, it was made clear that the Methodist Church  is in slow decline.

All our churches have been asked to pray for the renewal of the Church.

Our Worship Team are organising Prayer Stations within the Wesley Road Methodist Church.

The stations will focus on the rejuvenation of the Methodist Church. They will be set up after morning service on September 10th to be ready for use from 4pm on Sunday 10th followed by tea and cake.

During the following week the church will be open from 10am to 12 noon each day for prayer.

The stations will be taken down on 17th September after morning service.
