Methodism In Brompton


Around the time that John Wesley journeyed through the North-East a small class existed in Brompton. The meetings were held in a Cottage overlooking The Green, a few yards from where the Chapel now stands. In the year 1794 the first Wesleyan Chapel was erected and this was later enlarged to seat 300-400 people at a cost of one thousand and eighty pounds. The Primitive Methodist Chapel was built in 1820 on Cockpit Hill.

Towards the end of 1966 the two churches joined to convert the Wesleyan Sunday School into the present church. The opening ceremony took place on June 20th 1970 at 3.30pm and was conducted by Revd. Raymond Pearson B.D. The preacher was Revd. Peter A. Kerridge, Chairman of the York and Hull District.

The Brompton branch of the Wesleyan Methodist Missions were pioneers for missionary work at Brompton. A Poster given by the late Hannah Easton hangs in the Church entrance stating that: “The Public are respectfully informed that the Anniversary of the Brompton Branch Missionary Society will be held in the following order, in the Wesleyan Methodist Chapel, Brompton on Thursday, the 1st day of June, 1837 at 7 o'clock in the evening. The Indian Chief Shahwundais will deliver a Missionary Address. The Public meeting will be held at 2o'clock on Monday the 5th when Mr. Wm Dawson of Leeds, the Rev. J. Watson of Newcastle; W. Pennington of York and other Ministers and friends are expected to address the meeting. And in the evening at 7 Mr. W. Dawson will preach”.

The Methodist Church in Brompton is still very active with something for all ages: Sunday worship at, Mothers & Toddler Group, Sunday School, Ecumenical Youth Fellowship Group and Fellowship Group. We share joint services with St Thomas’s twice a quarter. Also on May bank holiday Sunday afternoon we share an open air service with St Thomas’s which is held on the village green.

Please refer to the Events and Service Times page for details of services and activities.
