Talbot Lane

Often called a 'gem of Methodist architecture', the church was built in the neogothic style in 1903, after fire destroyed the previous early 19th century chapel built on the site where John Wesley preached.

About this church

The church is the largest meeting place in Rotherham, with seating for around 850 people thanks to large galleries around three sides.

The interior of the church is magnificent, with some wonderful carved woodwork, including an oak pulpit and font and a high vaulted roof. The lovely Art Nouveau style chandeliers and early 1900’s stained glass windows create beautiful light in the church.

Why not come along and find out this fascinating history via our detailed information panels? You will also have the opportunity to join in various quizzes on the prepared sheets, as well as write or sketch if you feel inclined.

The church does, of course, offer excellent opportunities for photography.
