A Potted History

First Methodist services in the Swinton area were held in houses at the beginning of the 1800s. With increasing numbers a small Chapel was built on Station Road in 1809. This was replaced in 1850 by a preaching room and Sunday School in two cottages on Shaftsbury Road. Again numbers grew and a new Chapel was built on the present site in 1865, to be followed by the present building, which was opened on May 15th,1900.
