Dukinfield Methodist Church
Dukinfield Methodist Church
The first Methodist Church in Dukinfield opened in 1829. It was replaced by a large building called "Bethesda" which opened in 1840. In 1860 a large gallery was added to the chapel taking the seating capacity to over 1000, making it the largest chapel in the Ashton circuit. In 1898 the original Sunday school building was replaced by a new building, which remains in use today. In 1969 the Primitive Methodist Church in Foundry Street closed and the two congregations amalgamated. The last service of the old chapel was held on 20th May 1977, and the foundation stone of the new chapel laid on 11th December 1977 with the new building opening on September 9th 1978.
