Continuing my theme of the churches to be found in Pickering, North Yorkshire I bring you this one.
Look closely and you will see it reads Primitive Methodist Chapel, 1885. A history of what constitutes Primitive Methodism can be found here. Briefly it differs from Wesleyan Methodism in that the meetings used to be held outside and the congregation was made up by and large by the poorest people in a community , with a strong revivalist message.
Now it is just known as the Pickering Methodist Church
I love the way their website picture cuts out the top of the building!
Just a reminder of the churches in Pickering I have already shared.
The Parish Church – St Peter and St Paul (Church of England).
St Josephs – the catholic church, and
The Friends Meeting House.
Plenty more to come, which is not bad for a small market town of less than 10,000 people.
