John Wesley's Chapel

Why is John Wesley's Chapel the best choice for you?

The New Room in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world (originally built in 1739) and the cradle of the early Methodist movement. It was built and used by John Wesley and the early Methodists as a meeting and preaching place and the centre for helping and educating the needy members of the community. The chapel itself is on the ground floor. On the top floor of the building, above the chapel, are the Preachers’ Rooms. This is where a new accredited museum is located which tells the story of John and Charles Wesley and their life and work in Bristol.
