Liverpool, Renshaw Street, Central Hall of the Wesleyan Mission

Liverpool, Renshaw Street, Central Hall of the Wesleyan Mission was designed by Bradshaw & Glass of Bolton and opened in 1905. The authors of the Buildings of England, Lancashire, Liverpool and the South- West write of the building mingling classical, Byzantine, Gothic and Jacobean and refer to the art nouveau character of the terra cotta work., concluding “it all looks thoroughly unchurchlike and might well have been a theatre or department store”.The chapel is now closed and the building is occupied for leisure purposes

  • Do you know what happened to all the documents (Journals and Administration and other etc…) concerning the Wesleyan Mission at Liverpool on Renshaw Street? Mr. George Evens and his wife, Gipsy Tillie (Smith) Evens were at one time in the early 1900’s the Evangelists for the Mission. Tillie was the youngest sister of Gipsy Rodney Smith, the Evangelist. I would love to learn where all the original paperwork is from their days and glean from it their work with the mission and the late Charles Garrett.
