Southport, Wesley chapel, Kent Road

Southport, Wesley Chapel
Wesleyan Chapel Committee, 1871

One of a number of Wesleyan chapels built in Southport, Wesley was built to seat 650. At the time of the 1940 Statistical Returns, it could seat 620. The architects were a local Southport practice.

The chapel closed in 1971, but the name lives on as the congregation joined that of St. Philip and St. Paul in an LEP named St. Philip and St. Paul with Wesley.
