Wesleyan Centenary Hall, Bishopsgate Street (Foreign Mission House)

Wesleyan Centenary Hall, Bishopsgate Street
Hurst, J.F. The History of Methodism v 3. NY: Eaton & Mains, 1902 p 1343

This building was the headquarters of the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society from 1841 onwards. In the light of later associations of Methodism with the teetotal movement it may come as a surprise to learn that the site was bought along with the City of London Tavern. The building was adapted and rebuilt by William Fuller Pocock (1779-1849), a Wesleyan Methodist himself.  It was rebuilt in 1902-03, and served as Mission House until the Second World War, when a new Mission House was built on Marylebone Road. That building was subsequently repurposed as Methodist Church House, serving as such until 2022.
