Life and Thyme!

InSpired Sunday.

Continuing my theme of the churches to be found in Pickering, North Yorkshire I bring you this one.

3.01.14 001

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.

14.11.13 012

The Parish Church – St Peter and St Paul (Church of England).

21.11.13 021

St Josephs – the catholic church, and

16.11.13 011

The Friends Meeting House.

Plenty more to come, which is not bad for a small market town of less than 10,000 people.

  1. Chapels are a theme I need to blog sometime but I notice a lot of them have now been sold off and converted into houses. Nice set of churches you featured

  2. i love the 1st shot – so different. wow, i just read what Bill wrote … how interesting that they turn the churches into a home. so cool. not sure they do that in the USA. but i will check. super cool. ( :

  3. Beautiful buildings. I really like the symmetry in the first building.
