Comments about this page

I served as a Student Pastor in the Nantwich & Burland Circuit, of which Bulkeley Chapel was a part, from 1962-1963, after leaving Cliff College, & whilst offering as a Candidate for the Methodist Ministry. The annual 'Camp Meeting' still had a place on the Church Calendar, though I cannot recall whether or not we had one that year. 

Like the Pastors who preceded & followed me, I lodged with twin sisters, the Misses Nance & Edith Billington, who played a major part in the Church's life, together with the Johnson & Nightingale families. Like other Churches in the Circuit they were very proud of the Primitive Methodist roots, & maintained a level of independence in inviting Preachers (of whom they approved!) from other Circuits to fill in spaces on the Plan which the Superindent Minister & myself could not fill. 

Worship, as I recall, at Bulkeley Chapel was always a pleasure to conduct, & the Congregation responsive.
