A Brief history of the Church

1874 – A Non-Denominational Mission Hall was built on the present site by Captain Ward, a tug boat owner. it was known as “The Old Tin Chapel”.

1899 – The Old Tin Chapel was bought by the Rock Ferry Circuit of the Wesleyan Methodist Church.

1909 – on 3rd February a Dedicatory Service of the new building was held.

1932 – in September the three main branches of British Methodism (Wesleyan, Primitive and United) joined to form The Methodist Church of Great Britain.

1998 – A partnership formed between Neston Methodist Church, Age Concern EP&N and Cheshire County Council Social Services, to improve the existing premises, to provide new and extended facilities. This became known as Project 99.

1999 – In May, the premises re-opened as Neston Methodist Church and Community Centre.

Deacon John Clarke, who had pastoral charge of the church, said “We go forward with the hope that what will emerge from people who gather to work and worship here, will ensure a greater evidence of the love of Christ for all”.

2012 – Committed to become a Fairtrade Church

2013 – In April, opened a Foodbank Collection point.
