Directions to The New Room, John Wesley Chapel
Take a break from shopping and pop in to look at the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world. Situated just across the road from Debenhams, it is easy to access and has plenty of history associated with it. John Wesley built the New Room in 1739 and, as well as being used for meetings and worship, it functioned as a dispensary and schoolroom for the poor.
An interesting feature in the chapel is the double-decker pulpit - the upper part was used for the main sermon and the lower part for the rest of the service. A museum is housed upstairs in the old preachers' rooms where you can learn about the life and work of John and his brother Charles Wesley. In the courtyards around the building you can see their statues.
Monday - Saturday: 10am to 4pm.
Entry is free although donations are welcome.
