Welcome to ‘My Wesleyan Methodists’ where you can enjoy sharing photos, memories, stories and research about anything related to the Wesleyan strand of Methodism from its 18th century beginnings until the establishment of the Methodist Church in 1932.
Hi, I do not have any pictures of this church but can hopefully help shed some light on the history of the building. I am currently researching buildings in Liverpool that were bombed during WW2. A large volume of the rubble from these bombings ended up deposited on Crosby Beach, Liverpool and I believe this is what happened here as I have found gravestones at the beach which were from this church. If you want more info feel free to message me on twitter, my account is @archaeobeach.
From a letter to the Trustees I have recently rediscovered, it would appear that 19, Hardres Street remained in Methodist ownership until 1976 when the Trustees were served with a Buildings Preservation Notice, and the building was subsequently listed. Ignore the previous note about covenants.
Inside the building which replaced this one there is a painting off the exterior dated 1992. This was the year the foundation stone for the new building was laid so we may take it that the painting represents the building as it appeared just before demolition. A noticeable feature is the absence of the spire. Was it ever built and, if so, when was it taken down?
