The current Methodist church on Barrack Street, Warwick (CV34 4TH), is the former Wesleyan Methodist chapel.  After early Methodists Methodists met in houses which were licensed for worship in Castle Street and in Gerrard Street, the current chapel is in fact the fourth Wesleyan Methodist chapel in Warwick.

  1. The first Chapel was built in Millers Lane, later called Chapel Street, opening in 1824 and closing in 1834
  2. A significant fall in membership meant that a remaining members built a second Chapel in Strand Street in 1839.  This chapel was later sold to the Primitive Methodists
  3. As numbers grew, in 1863 they built a larger Chapel and schoolroom at the corner of Market Street and Bowling Green Street
  4. With growing membership – and  building problems in Market Street –  the foundation stones for the current chapel in Northgate were laid in June 1892 and the Chapel  was opened on 25th May 1893
