New Room Chapel Reviews & Ratings
Wonderful Methodist Church, were John Wesley preached. This was the very first Methodist Church. Lovely cafe at the back of the chapel were wholesome snacks can be had. Nice shop and well worth having a look at the museum. 10/10
Fab visit as always. Such a welcoming place, and very easy to take children. Lovely and friendly cafe. Thanks!
Fantastic visit! Lovely, helpful staff and a beautiful building. The museum is outstanding with lots of information clearly laid out. Thank you very much!
Awarded best small attraction in the area and bronze for best South West attraction. Multi award winning cafe - food and coffee all made with local organic fairtrade ingredients. Chapel is an oasis of tranquillity in the midst of the busy Broadmead area and the museum is brilliant, very hands on for kids and interesting for adults too. Ticket for museum is valid for 12 months. Excellent!!
The worlds first Methodist church. John Wesley was an English cleric and theologian who, with his brother Charles and fellow cleric George Whitefield, founded Methodism. Educated at Charterhouse School and Christ Church, Oxford, Wesley was elected a fellow of Lincoln College, Oxford in 1726 and ordained as an Anglican priest two years later. He rejected the established church..and preached wherever he could..
