Plumstead Primitive Methodist chapel

London Third circuit

By Christopher Hill

In the 1856 Primitive Methodist magazine J Wenn describes the re-opening of Plumstead Primitive Methodist chapel after enlargement.

"Our chapel here having been considerably enlarged, was re-opened on Sunday, June 29th, 1856, when two sermons were preached by the writer to large and respectable congregations. In the evening we were favoured with a gracious influence, and three souls professed to find peace through the blood of the Lamb. On Monday we held a tea and a public meeting, and, on the whole, we have done well. The enlargement cost about £66, towards which we have obtained, from all sources, about £43, thus adding to the debt only £23 In the above we have not included about £12 worth of labour gratuitously supplied by the mechanics connected with the society. We are thankful to the Giver of all good for the realization of our desires, and the church and congregation have greatly increased within the past twelve months."
