History of Methodism in Horncastle.


The first Wesleyan Methodist chapel was built in 1786 in the district known as The Wong or Cagthorpe. It was replaced by a new chapel on the same site in 1806.

In 1837 a new chapel was built on Queen Street, which was in turn replaced by a new chapel on the same site in 1870. This chapel was found to be unsafe and closed in 1962.

It was replaced on the same site by the present chapel which opened in 1965. (During the re-building of the Queen Street premises, 1962-1965, the congregation worshipped at Holy Trinity Anglican Church).

The cross - look closely.

The Cross

When I survey the wondrous cross, on which the Prince of Glory died, my richest gain I count but loss and pour contempt on all my pride.
