Marazion Methodist Church

Built in 1895 this chapel is a fine example of provincial, gothic style with fine stained glass windows throughout.

About this church

This Wesleyan chapel stands in proud, prominent position in our town reflecting our forbears pride, wealth and faith! 

A fine example of Cornish craftsmanship designed to be a place of prayer, worship and song. The original fittings in mellow pitch pine are enhanced by a full set of mainly geometric stained glass designs with the four Gospel writers depicted over the main doors. The stained glass throughout is of unusually high standard for a Methodist church.

The organ sits very prominently with original painted pipes and indicates the long and central place that music and singing has played in the chapel.

The building is reached either by granite steps to the front or ramp from the carpark. There is one step into the rear vestry which is generally kept locked but again with forewarning this can be open and a ramp placed for visitors' convenience. Leaflets outlining the chapel's history are available.
